In adverse conditions among a packed field of World cup talent, Gee Atherton won the first round of the 2013 British Downhill Series by over 2 seconds on a sub 3-minute course. While we're not certain at the time of this writing, we believe Gee won on this prototype GT downhill bike. The top 5 was a battle between GT Factory Racing and Team CRC Nukeproof. The 2013 season is going to be a good one! Stay tuned for updates as we receive them.

    Hill had next to zero practice. Hit seeding blind and went faster than almost everyone there... so haters go hush yourself.
