Video: Gee Atherton vs David Knight
When you put together two professional racing superstars, something cool is bound to happen. Let’s take Gee Atherton and David "Knighter" Knight for example. Atherton is a professional racing cyclist who specializes in downhill and four cross mountain bike racing. He is also a multiple national champion, multiple World Cup winner, and 2010 downhill World Cup Champion. David "Knighter" Knight is a three-time world champion enduro rider from the Isle of Man.
Now, give them two bikes to toil around with, put them together, and what do you get? This ultimate challenge of man versus machine took place at the home of UK mountain biking, Fort William.
Atherton is a little bit more familiar with this track, after all he has been practicing here for around three years, but will this be enough to take on Knight? To be honest, we don’t really care. What we do care about is that we got the chance to watch these two guys battle it out while proving that they absolutely know what they are doing.
For the sake of our sanity; please don’t try this at home.
