If i could swap riding style's with anyone it would be Gee Atherton. Heaps fit, really good at technical stuff, smooth, super fast just one of the most consistent riders to watch.
hmmm...Vote 1 Danny Hart...I have no idea how that kid rides so loose in clips but it's ridiculous, best whips in the bizIf i could swap riding style's with anyone it would be Gee Atherton.

Nah, go Bredan Fairclough... He shreds at just about every riding style. It's pretty amazing watching him in the movie F1RST!If i could swap riding style's with anyone it would be Gee Atherton.

Agree, Danny Hart or maybe even Brayton?hmmm...Vote 1 Danny Hart...I have no idea how that kid rides so loose in clips but it's ridiculous, best whips in the biz
I would agree though in terms of all around bike skills (all forms, DJ, 4x etc etc) I think Gee is easily the pick of the bunch.
yeah, brayton has pretty mad style... also can anyone remember the name of the guy in earthed 4 riding a mega-rocky track like a lunatic? he had pretty sick technique - if it helps memories he stopped once (looks like it was his first time down the track) on this rockface huck into a jagged rockgarden. fast paced techno and i think (?) there was a squirrel in the segment, he nearly ran it over while it was munching on an acorn.Agree, Danny Hart or maybe even Brayton?
The whole atherton family is pretty insane, I wonder what there family gatherings are like... Easter Sunday spent Downhilling? Christmas spent at the bike park? hahaLast one guys,
To the in quote replies:
-Sam hasn't created anything, there will always be a culture of blind favoritism, especially among the younger demographic.
Yeh you've got a point, the blind fandboyism will always be there regardless of who's arse there sniffing.
Perfectly calm here. I don't think you can judge someone's frame of mind off your own level of butt hurt.
Your were putting in extra effort to insult in a simple discussion...
I aggree with the rest of your post too...
Regarding Fort William tomorrow, I just want Athy to do well
He just doesn't interview well. It's not something he is comfortable with.i believe I had it completely backwards
This is the side that doesn't reach the media, so opinions are formed based solely on their 'media persona'. Scrape away all the bollocks and most of these guys are happiest when they're away from it all and just riding.He just doesn't interview well. It's not something he is comfortable with.
I've met him a couple of times. The first was back in 2005. We were setting up for a National race and Sam turned up with Bryn and Sharples 4 or 5 days out from the event.
Other guys were already there pumping out shuttles. I suggested they follow the other cars up to get a couple of runs in. They hadn't even bought bikes, instead they offered to spend the day helping us get the track ready.
Next day they turned up and started shuttling with some of the young locals.
I've had massive respect for them ever since.
Swing and a miss chief. Swing and a miss.Not a fan of Sam Hill to be honest...
Sure he's quick and he's Australian but something about him makes me hate him. Also I would rate Steve Peat alot higher then Sam on the ladder of awesomeness.
Thing I hate most about him (not his fault at all) is all the young guys copying his every move and thinking every other way is wrong/shit. I'm all for mainstream and I don't try and be different to much but it's abit ridiculous when everyone is riding Sundays with full TLD kits and the flatest 800mm bars they can find...
Another massive swing and miss bro.Also, Sam seems to comes off as abit arrogant in his interviews and videos. Where as most other riders couldn't care less that there winning because they love riding.
Just my opinion. He's probably a mad fella off camera, but I don't know that. Not going to continue this...Another massive swing and miss bro.
oh and Steve Peat? Really? He whinges better than he rides.
