Joy And Disappointment For Team GB In World Champs Downhill

Matt Walker led a British one-two in the medals in the Junior Downhill World Championships in a weekend of crashes and upsets that saw many favourites derailed by crashes on a tough, dry and dusty course.

In the Junior men, it was gold and silver as Matt Walker and Joe Breeden took top honours in the Junior Men’s Downhill. The top ten was also stacked with Brits with Kaos Seagrave in fifth and Henry Kerr in ninth.
