Mountain bikes: Britain dominate at World Championships

GB's Carpenter wins thrilling gold

Great Britain's downhill riders dominated at the 2014 UCI Mountain Bike World Championships in Norway.

Gee Atherton won gold in the elite men's competition, with Josh Bryceland claiming silver.

Manon Carpenter took the rainbow jersey ahead of defending world champion and race favourite Rachel Atherton in the women's event, with Tahnee Seagrave's bronze making it an all-British podium.

"It's pretty crazy, amazing, just the best thing ever," said Carpenter.

Bryceland managed to take silver despite suffering a suspected broken ankle during his ride.

"It's sad to see Josh injured but that's racing," said gold medallist Atherton. "I am over the moon to have won a World Championship."

Great Britain's Laurie Greenland, 17, won silver in the men's junior final.
