 cool
  • + 34
 AMAZING!!! I swear I was giggling like a little the entire time I was watching this
  • + 16
 neat.
  • + 15
 this was was good! but the bmx race episode a few weeks back was pure choreography and rubbish!
  • + 44
 They caused a ruckus!
  • + 34
 Just comes to show how much faster a bike can be in citys.
  • + 35
 however it was gee atherton verus james may aka 'captain slow'so it was a bit unfair, still cool though
  • + 48
 why did i get negative props? do you not know the definition of "ruckus"?
  • + 18
 "however it was gee atherton verus james may aka 'captain slow'so it was a bit unfair, still cool though"
James May is a good driver, if you look on some of the episodes where they are on beaches, he powerslides the cars with ease, they just dont show him driving well because its part of his "character"
Cool video, seen it on tv already tho:P
  • + 2
 What is he riding?
  • + 7
 I love that part where jumps over the car
  • + 85
 how can gee's route be a km longer if they started and finished in the same place???????
  • + 161
 well just think about 2 things
#1 . where did you put your brain
#2 . if you start in edinburgh and finish in london, one could go straight there and the other could go to new york then london, they both started and finished in the same place but went different ways. you dumb f*ck.

 nice video! can this be VOD again?! next time its shumacher VS Gee! thatl be neck and neck!
  • + 2
 kev-roberts - yeah, this is when gee rode for giant/sram
  • + 1
 i think it may have been slightly choreographed like the jump over the car and stuff but def not as much as the bmx
  • + 2
 wasnt it filmed like a few days before lisbon downtown in '07?
He takes the same route as the downtown too
  • + 5
 who were the 102 dumb asses who gave braveamateur props up there?
  • + 1
 They gave him neg props, but pinkbike now changes loads of neg props into positive props to put an end to "Show comment" filled pages.
  • + 1
 fuckin' james may... grrrrr
  • + 18
 that was amazing, top gear is the shit. i loved the one where they went to the states and got chased by rednecks.
  • + 7
 haha i love that episode. with things like Hillary for president, and Man Love is best, Nascar writen on eachothers cars so they'd get shot hahaha!

 what else ?
  • + 7
 No way that a car would win that! Bike has a big advantage of taking shortcuts Big Grin
  • + 7
 top gear is the coolest show around
  • + 6
 That was unreal. To bad they called him a boy on a bike though kinda makes us look like kids.

.................Lisbon downtown 17 May ....................

 I loved this when i saw it on t.v glad someones uploaded it =].James May is the funiest on that programme good old top gear.
  • + 5
 Genex did something like this but it was Sam Hill racing a Subaru rally car down a mountain and the bike won again. Did anyone else see it??
  • + 1
 here's the link: www.pinkbike.com/video/7209 it's a very staged video and (to be honest) complete nonsense, but it's always good to see Sam Hill killing it on a bike!
  • + 7
 Lisbon, Portugal!! My country rlz Razz

 That was fantastic! "The boy on the bicycle" lol. Loved the timing when he jumped the car. Looks like an awesome city to ride in.

 im gay

 that's nice
  • + 4
 that looks really fun!!!You were flying through those streets.Ilove it when he jumps over the car.Nice vod
  • + 2
 Yay, I got a VOD Big Grin (even though I only did the upload)
And it´s even the first VOD of 2008, that´s kinda cool.
I also have that BMX-episode mentioned by Dits, anyone interested?
  • + 1
 Yes, upload it RIGHT NOW!!
  • + 5
 ha what are stairs
  • + 1
 Oh and by the way, that race couldn't be possible to do in one shot. Not only it would be impossible to film, as also I know the place very well and the places they go through aren't in a logical order.
  • + 3
 ja tinha visto,mx nunca aki no pinkbike

ta demais!
portugal rulezzzzzzzzz
=D
  • + 1
 they should make a show where three British guys race and test bikes. then get famous people to ride a short track on some crappy hardtrail then make fun of them for being american.. That would be a bad ass show
  • + 0
 Ok, one understandable example for the obvious dork above me: If you start in London and want to go to Glasgow, taking the ferry to Ireland and then over to Scotland would make your way much longer than if you would´ve gone straight north.
  • + 2
 haha i remember this 1 from a while back on top gear whoresome gee rules would have een better if they used hamond tho not captian slow
  • + 1
 At 2:07 the old lady says "ai credo", which in portuguese means something like "oh holy"

It can´t be really translated, but if you're portuguese, you would probably think it was funny.
  • + 1
 JamesOliver, have you got a link? Sounds worth a watch. Topgear is quality tho, James May is great, I just hope the world doesn't watch and assume all British people are that way.
  • + 3
 lets see him do that in london
  • + 1
 uhmmmm...!!!!
i'm a AREA MANAGER of RENAULT.....and a biker....
Great!!!pse dont say nothing to my company that i've liked much more the bike vs the new clio....(SSSSSS))
  • + 1
 ^ agreed LoL, i watched this back when it came out on tv and it still gives me an adrenaline rush every time i see it! (omg how close was that at 114.0!) Big Grin
  • + 2
 this show is the best they should make a top gears 2 for bikes that would be kick ass
  • + 3
 Excellent you have to love Top Gear. This season, 10, was amazing.
  • + 3
 hahaha such a cool vid..
best VOD ever i reckon hahah Big Grin
  • + 1
 Cant wait till spring so i can ride again. Im going to ahve to try that next season. Get a couple friends together and race bikes through the city.
  • + 3
 nice when he jumps over the car!!!!
  • + 2

  • + 2
 lol. Car guy got owned! Thats looks like fun. Love the random old people shots.
  • + 1
 its odd how they doubt the skills of the current world cup downhill race champion, they are completely oblivious to the world of MTB
  • + 3
 Beautifull city isn't it?
  • + 1
 "how can gee's route be a km longer if they started and finished in the same place???????" u r an idiot LOL
  • - 1
 james may and richard hammond aren't very good drivers lol. they got a rating of three out of ten on radio one. saying this because some person wrote that james may is a good driver. immense video

 this is the first video i saw that got me into biking i remember it well it was on TV and i was watching it with my parents and they were like "gee is mad, dont you ever do anything like that!" and i thought about for 2 seconds then said this is what i want to do. i went out and did a 60 stair then i did a 150 stair now ive done a 196 stair, i cant find any bigger than that (sucks). im one of the most highly regarded members of my team now. Thanks Top Gear, but moreover Thanks Gee Atherton!
