<b>First some sick action...</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Wait, what were we talking about?</b>

<b>Oh yeah, the 2014 GT Fury DH bike. Gee Atherton talks about the team's involvement since the day they signed on with GT.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Welcome to the GT press launch where the 2014 GT Fury was debuted.</b> -Duncan Philpott

<b>GT Engineer, Etienne Warnery in the audio. Weight saving has been crucial in the design of the new Fury, but only after all the other ride quality factors have been sorted.</b> -Duncan Philpott

<b>No interchangeable dropouts for other wheel sizes here...</b> -Duncan Philpott

<b>Cross sections, cross sections, cross sections. Check out the size difference in the asymmetrical stays for extra stifness!</b> -Duncan Philpott

<b>We interrupt your regularly scheduled nerding out to watch Dan Atherton blast the shit out a jump.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Team mechanic, Pete in audio as you see the Old vs. New Fury.</b>

<b>Beaumont gets particular with his set up.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>The aluminum 2014 GT Fury is lighter than the previous carbon version.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Nano-measuring and stuff. Will there be 650b come Pietermaritzburg World Champs?</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Just like epic jumps need refining, so do the best race bikes. Gee and the team knew that the right changes coming together would make a perfect bike.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Gee is confident in the way the new bike rides and knows it's up to him to get the winning done in 2013.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Dan's only excuse is that the 2014 Fury is a DH race bike, not a massive-step-up-360-freeride-bike! #gnar</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Rachel is stoked on the larger layout of the bike. She's more comfortable in the cockpit and feels it handles the rough terrain better.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Rachel even rode Gee's large Fury last year just to see how it felt.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Taylor Vernon is the new kid of the DH block for GT Factory Racing and he's up to the task. Team Manager, Dan Brown in audio.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>This crew is used to pressure-filled situations.</b> -Duncan Philpott

<b>Good luck this weekend! Thanks to Duncan, Sven and GT Factory Racing for the insight into the 2014 Fury.</b> -Sven Martin

GT debuted the 2014 GT Fury DH bike in Fort William today. Going back to aluminum instead of continuing the carbon tradition, the frame has been redesigned from the ground up with suspension improvements and weight-saving construction throughout. The Athertons and Marc Beaumont have been working on this bike since they signed with GT well over a year ago and their hard work has finally paid off.
