Gee Atherton's 2014 Mont Sainte Anne Crash 10

Gee Atherton went down hard at the end of the rock waterfall during practice on Thursday at the Mont Sainte Anne World Cup. He ended up going to the ER for x-rays on his shoulder and was unsure he'd race. Some 24 hours later, he qualified and ended up 11th! Gee is no stranger to being horribly abused at Mont Sainte Anne only to come back with incredible race performances. Check out Gee's 2012 practice crash video here. He ended up racing and finished 4th that year! In 2013 Gee Atherton blew off course into the trees at Mont Sainte Anne! Thanks for the memory jog, canadmos!

    I love how you guys write "2014 crash", clearly implying that Gee has a massive crash here every year.
    It's sad and extremely funny at the same time

    Strange, I don't think they're implying that at all but rather marking it as happening at the 2014 Mont. Sainte Anne stop, which I see a lot of websites do for whatever highlights. I think you're just projecting and I think Gee is a metal man because that dude can take some serious hits and keep going... insane.

    he has had a crash ever year for the last 3 years, as listed in the video description with links to the videos (2012, 2013 and now 2014).

    That was Dan Brown that walked down to him. He's got the whole course to crash on and does it right in front of his team manager.

    Gee is crazy. How does he keep going?

    There is a video of him flying off into the trees out of a berm/turn and railing his nuts. At MSA too?
