Gee Atherton Sends It

This is kind of snowboard related. Gee Atherton, who's currently the number 1 ranked downhill mountain biker in the world, sends it off a snowboard park booter. According to VitalMTB he walked away with just a concussion and some bruises. Dude's crazy.

Jeebus. He spends all that time scoping out his speed for the jump and then overshoots the landing? Fuck me that looked painful.

No Shit!!! I noticed that too!! Even on the practice runs he had some douche nozzle on skis cutting in on him!!!
You'd think they would have cordoned off that slope for the stunt, right?

This.

I was shocked he went for it after getting his line somewhat snaked. Lucky he walked away, looked like he basically did a face dive from 50feet.

Mountain bikes fuck me up too.

The just with a "concussion" thing. Yeah KP just had a concussion too. Granted, more severe, but man I would be seriously concerned over any sort of brain injury. I've toured the Brain and spina injury wards at Craig Hospital where KP was treated. They do amazing stuff there, but damn is that not a rough thing to see. I seriously hope I am never a patient there.

the name in the title of the video is wrong...the rider, who`s overshooting that jump is not gee atherton, but his brother dan atherton. he was also a great dh-rider, but he broke his neck some years ago and since that he`s only riding some enduro-races...

take a look at the videoseries " the atherton project" from some years ago. it`some of the best insideview to the dh-circus.

and if you ask yourself who is currently ruling the women`s downhill scene...yes, it`s the little sister, rachel atherton...
