Atherton Diaries Episode 14: Red Bull Fox Hunt Fever

Oct 12, 2017
by Atherton Racing  

In Mach its “gnarly, muddy and real choppy’ – Rach is joined by Trek team-mate Katy Winton who is a brilliant stand-in fox, the female riders are all feigning a laid-back approach but secretly they are flat – out practicing their mass-start elbow techniques!

Atherton Academy’s Mille Johnset is the youngest rider on track – but has she got the power to take the win? And will Gill from Athy Racing ever make it down in one piece?

Over in Rostrevor 450 men aren’t even pretending. Gee is joined by World Champ Loic Bruni and Rob Warner for full-on crashes and carnage all the way – pushing, shoving and roaring with bikes and riders flying through the steep woods section – just not necessarily in the same direction! Loic gets loose and Irish enduro rider Kelan Grant takes the win with Gee in 9th – At least there is time for few pints of Guinness!

 Haha that's was a nice Purzelbaum! Both bikes fly right in front of Gee's wheel and he didn't even blink nor brake.. it's like his brain can just freeze time and calculate the trajectory.
