Atherton adds another rainbow jersey to the birdcage


LONDON (Reuters) - Rachel Atherton once had "a bit of a dream" of taking up track cycling but, with five mountain bike downhill world championship golds and six World Cup titles won, she would do nothing different now.

The 30-year-old Briton on Sunday became her sport's most decorated downhill world champion, adding a fifth rainbow jersey to the collection she keeps in a birdcage at home.
