“Happy Halloween” from professional BMX rider Kayley Ashworth and professional downhill mountain biker Manon Carpenter.

“And Manon Carpenter sets off from the gate. Through the top section and pedalling hard she fell behind at the first split by two and half seconds, but a blinding mid and bottom section saw Manon claw back a second coming into the finish arena, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to beat the current champion. Coming in a valiant 1.5seconds behind Rachel, Manon finished off the ladies racing in second place.” - via Dirt World Cup Gallery: Vallnord – Finals | Dirt
