Extreme sports are just that. Extreme. That means there's a fair bit of danger involved, and here at Mpora, we're pretty keen to make sure we don't cut our lifespan short while we're shredding some lines.

That's why we've launched new series 'How Not To Die...' - a feature asking pros from around the action sports world how to make sure we don't die when we give their trade a shot.

For round one, we caught up with Rachel Atherton at the conclusion of the 2014 Downhill World Cup in Meribel, to find out how to steer clear of the Reaper when we're riding downhill.
