Great Britain’s Tracy Moseley ended her 13-year wait for women’s downhill World Championship gold with victory in Mont Saint Anne, Canada on Sunday.

The 31-year-old excelled in wet conditions to triumph in 5:17.47 minutes, eight seconds ahead of France’s newly-crowned World Cup champion Sabrina Jonnier.

Jonnier’s compatriot, 2009 world champion Emmeline Ragot, finished a further three seconds back to claim bronze.

Meanwhile, Australia’s Sam Hill made it a hat-trick of World Championship titles with victory in the men’s race.

The 25-year-old, previous winner in 2006 and 2007, claimed gold ahead of Canadian Steve Smith and South African Greg Minnaar.

Hill made the most of dry conditions during his run to clock 4:37.93, while Gee Atherton and Steve Peat, among the pre-race favourites, had to contend with rain and finished fifth and seventh respectively.
