Wow! The UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, presented by Shimano, from 10-12 April, is just getting better and better. It has now been confirmed that men’s downhill champion and current world #1, Gee Atherton will also be competing at this prestigious event.
The 24 year old Briton, Gee *his real name is George, but I’d also hide my real name if I was called that* is going to be competing for honours in rival, Greg Minnaar’s own backyard, Pietermaritzburg. And just to make sure he has an advantage, he will be bringing along his siblings, Rachel and Dan – who also happen to race for the Animal Commencal team – as his support.
It’s like Greg Minnaar is going to be up against the Mario Bros…and now a sister too, I guess haha.
