Man vs. Machine – Atherton vs. Knight

The Tom Cruise of the cycling world - Gee Atherton | Photo by Red Bull

Anybody who has read our blog previously knows about Maarten’s man-crush on the Atherton brothers and we have mentioned them earlier, such as in the Red Bull rampage post. They are great riders and good-looking people and their sponsor Red Bull is maximizing their popularity by setting up a race – Between man and machine, between a downhill rider and an enduro motorbike.

Enter another Red Bull (surprise!) rider, Enduro hero David Knight and pit these two against each other on Gee’s home run and see which one will be faster down the hill. The experience and litheness of Gee Atherton or the mechanized manliness of David Knight?

Take a look:

Yeah.
