- Lucky escape – Rachel Atherton Vid
Yes, lucky escape
Listening to an iPod
Cycling with her head down
Drifting onto the wrong side of the road
All the ingredients for a Darwin AwardPosted 11 years ago
She likes AC/DC….Posted 11 years ago
very talented downhill cyclist as well
oh and i should say very nice person by all accountsPosted 11 years ago
“narrowly escapes injury”. No she didnt, she WAS injured, more like “narrowly escaped death”
You’d think her sponsors would make her wear a frickin’ helmet
Very lucky girl, get well soon etcPosted 11 years ago
Before you say so, no I cant readPosted 11 years ago
Err it says narrowly escaped serious injury on the footnote. 😉
Oh and get well soon!Posted 11 years ago
I don’t quite understand why she appears to be wearing a skin suit?Posted 11 years ago
silly move, she should know betterPosted 11 years ago
If she had been wearing a helmet, it would be getting used as an example of a helmet “saving” someone’s life.Posted 11 years ago
what i like is how when i first met her some years ago, she (and her brothers) had a broad shropshire accent
shropshire accents aren’t like gnarly dudePosted 11 years ago
‘windshield’ WTF?????Posted 11 years ago
“Dude, it was gnarly”.

Its all a bit Joss Stone, no? (rising inflection at end of sentence)Posted 11 years ago

i can’t talk to be fair
we were all like ‘WOH SICK DUDE THAT WAS RAD’ in canada last year, mostly not ironicallyPosted 11 years ago
Whoa there fella, TALKING IN CAPITALS!Posted 11 years ago
It was gnarly… (that sounded a bit awkward)
God, how annoying!
Still, glad she’s ok.Posted 11 years ago
I reckon it was a publicity stuntPosted 11 years ago
You have to ask whether her mental faculties have been affected by previous blows to the headPosted 11 years ago
I like the way it describes her as ‘shropshire’s downhill mountain bike champion’ – as though she is the champion of shropshire 😛Posted 11 years ago
Strange,they don’t even live in Shropshire or England for that matter…but hey it’s only a minor detail,different country and all !Posted 11 years ago
I think more people should go on the news in their bras!Posted 11 years ago
women NOT people!!Posted 11 years ago
I agree with thomthumb!Posted 11 years ago
BUT she should have been looking where she was going!Helmet is up to the individual.
When I had a similar crash as a young’un on me chopper- riding away from the corner shop with curly-wurly in mit- I wish had said “gnarley dude”, instead of crying and running home to me mam!
Are women not people?Posted 11 years ago
I can’t believe how bloody stupid she was!
Hope she gets better soon though.Posted 11 years ago
Forget her – look at the Cervelo…..Posted 11 years ago
Boo hoo hoo, throw a blanket over it or something.
