At home with the Athertons

| Blog, Mountain Biking Uk | 18/05/2012 15:00pm

Gee, Rachel and Dan Atherton take their turns in the spotlight in BikeRadar‘s video series with the most famous siblings in mountain biking.

Part 1 – Gee reflects on the world cup season opener in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa and assesses his chances for the rest of the season. He reveals how he’s getting on with his new race bike, the GT Fury, before hitting the dirt jumps his brother Dan built in their back garden.

Part 2 – Rachel talks about her recovery from injury, her hopes for the 2012 season and her favourite new bike theĀ GT Force, and then takes us on a cross-country ride with her dog Angus.

Part 3 – Dan talks about his plans to race gravity enduros as well as some longer events like the Trans Provence and Italian super enduros. As he says, for someone who grew up on a diet of dirt jumps and skate parks, these are likely to be tough to adapt to.
