Gee Atherton MTB World Cup

With only three days to go until this year?s Nissan UCI Mountain Bike World Cup Fort William, confidence is high after Britain?s most talented mountain biking family triumphed in achieving the first ever triple family win in a World Cup competition.

After a successful run in Andorra?s World Cup last week, Rachel (19), Gee (23) and Dan (26) Atherton are gearing up to take on the rugged terrain of the Nevis Range ski area and the Leanachan Forest. Their trio of tremendous wins last week means they will descend on Fort William at the Nissan UCI Mountain Bike World Cup on the June 6-8 2008, knowing that they have what it takes to gain their first wins at the celebrated course.
