Video: Atherton Diaries Episode 24: Gee's Brush With the Law and a Fort William Hat-Trick

May 15, 2018
by Atherton Racing  

Follow Gee through some gnarly testing in San Remo - and a brush with the Italian Police! Then there's a much gentler tour of the Endura factory en route to sunny Fort William and the second round of the UK National Series.

It's a big ask for Gee and Rachel this weekend, returning to the scene of last year's major injuries for the first time.

The psychological elements of racing are definitely taking their toll on the siblings as they share their apprehension in the start-gate.

Gee speaks openly of how disappointed he is not to have put last year's hip dislocation behind him in order to reclaim his famous Fort William pace. Charlie walks away from a finals crash but there are celebrations too with a hat-trick of victories for Rachel, Kade and Atherton Academy's Luke Williamson.

 @fecalmaster: I thought it was funny. Maybe they thought you actually meant 'raping'.

Chamillioaire is a venture capitalist nowadays BTW.

 @endlessblockades: It's all jokes, try to make everyone I can laugh. Thanks for pointing that out, as you can see I ride better than I spell. I was definitely referring to rapping. Would never joke or even talk about that.
