Gee Atherton reflects on start to season

Here's the first video in our exclusive four-part series at home with the most famous siblings in mountain biking, the Athertons.

In Chapter 1, Gee reflects on the World Cup season opener in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa and assesses his chances for the rest of the season. He reveals how he's getting on with his new race bike, the GT Fury, before hitting the dirt jumps his brother Dan built in their back garden.

Chapter 2, coming soon, will turn the spotlight onto Rachel, who just won this past weekend's iXS Downhill Cup in Monte Tamaro.

The following video is filmed and edited by Liam Murphy.
