Gee Atherton Charges Down Fort William

It’s always impressive to see how fast riders can glide down Fort William. It’s a credit to the athleticism of mountain bikers at the top of their game. To ride down such a long, rough track and not take any breaks is a feat in itself. To do it at this speed is even more impressive.

Fort William is one of the fastest, roughest tracks in the world. Hop aboard to experience Gee Atherton’s POV as the Atherton Bike tracks every turn and makes short work of some very large rocks! Gee has taken the World Cup win twice on this beast of a track at Nevis range, as well as 7 National titles – Watch him on a charge!
