British riders dominated the qualifying rounds of the downhill discplines at the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships, currently taking place at Fort William in Scotland.
Rachel Atherton and Tracy Moseley qualified first and second fastest in the women's elite event, with Richard Cunningham qualifying fastest in the junior men and Gee Atherton taking second spot in the elite men. British hope Steve Peat qualified in a cautious - and hopefully not unlucky -13th despite recently dislocating his foot.
