    “Proud of my bro!" Those were the words of Rachel Atherton, winner of the 2014 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup Downhill in Cairns, Australia after she and her big brother dominated the brutal, rain-soaked, muddy course.

    It’s been an incredible 2013 for Gee Atherton. The UCI Mountain Bike Downhill circuit has actually been pretty much an Atherton show.

Now there’s just one more goal for 2013: become the World Champion for the second time in his career.
