Words: Atherton Racing

Gee Atherton spends the day hitting some unseen gaps on some of the fastest trails we have!

Gee said "In such dry conditions the speed was unreal! If I could hang on to the bike I could make some brand new, untested gapsI Watch the raw footage of one of the most fun days I’ve had on a bike. This was insane."

 Gee Atherton is an amazingly skilled rider.................. Maybe a GOAT
  • 67 1
 tottally agree!! he is so underrated , 2 x world champion ,overall uci dh winner , rampage podium... a living legend in my humble opinion.
  • 3 1
 Since GOAT stands for greatest of all time, by definition you can't be "a" GOAT. Like HIghlander there can be only one.
I don't think he's underrated either. 10 years ago he was all anyone talked about.

 Maybe a Goat, but more likely a Welsh Sheep...

 Ahem, @redrook: there can be many GOATs, there are many different disciplines in riding and even in the same discipline each next GOAT replaces the last...
Irrespective of whether he made it to GOAT status, he's an amazing rider and it's great to watch what he can do.
  • 3 1
 Ahem (lol, what) @SlideShowFlow: there are obviously loads of GOATs. There's a GOAT for tennis too probably, but we're talking about DH mountain biking. Redrook is completely correct, by definition there can only be a single greatest, otherwise the phrase loses any meaning.
He is an amazing rider, nobody said otherwise.

 @rbeach: I would like to see Pink Bike do a research article on the greatest riders of all time per disciplines instead of doing articles on bike shit we can't buy because of supply chain issues.

 @CornPop: That would be much more interesting (very subjective, as all such discussions are), but PB are a giant advert so they're not interested in doing articles like that. Literally everything on here is an ad (advertorial, paid promo, whatever they want to call it).

 I've ridden Dyfi a few times. I'm pretty average, but Gee is flat out nuts. If you check anything with Dan riding there or Brendogs latest edit it show's how good this lot really are.

 Dan just ripping those tracks on his trail bike and boosting the jumps massive to flat is so awesome to watch. Charlie Hatton also was flying in the last Brendog edit.
