National Champion, World Cup winner and 2008 downhill World Champion – there isn’t much Gee Atherton hasn’t accomplished on a mountain bike. The Oswestry-born rider started his race career in 1998 and since then, has become with his brother Dan and sister Rachel, part of the most recognisable bunch of sporting siblings in the UK, principally with their Animal Commencal racing team. Gee also memorably appeared on BBC’s Top Gear show, racing his mountain bike against a Renault Clio through the streets of Lisbon and reaching the finish line in first place!!
