    It’s been an incredible 2013 for Gee Atherton. The UCI Mountain Bike Downhill circuit has actually been pretty much an Atherton show. Winning both the Fort William and Val di Sole World Cup stops earlier in the season, along side his little sister Rachel, older brother Gee is in the driver’s seat for another World Cup Overall title. Now there’s just one more goal for 2013: become the World Champion for the second time in his career.
