Just over a year after a horrific crash that left him lucky to be alive, Gee Atherton is set to return to racing this weekend at Red Bull Hardline 2022.
June 18, 2021, Gee fell over 100 feet while filming 'The Knife Edge
' edit and sustained a long list of physical and mental injuries including many broken bones, concussion, night terrors, and PTSD.
That he's back on the bike is remarkable in itself, and the prospect of the winner of nine World Cups racing again is especially exciting. Re-entering racing on the gnarliest course in the sport is a few steps beyond extraordinary.
This year, the Hardline course has been made even tougher than ever
, with a new on-off feature, a massive 86-foot blind gap jump, and more.
We look forward to seeing what Gee can achieve as he works through the mental barriers from his crash and enters another defining chapter of his 22-year professional racing career.
