    For the "bicycle nutters" out there, gee atherton action...

    Not sure if anyone else here has seen this, but thought I'd post it up.

    Gee Atherton doing some urban shredding on a Giant Reign in Lisbon, against the guy from "Top Gear" in a clio.

    was gonna post it in the usual "urban/dj/park" forum, but this honestly isn't exactly what I'd call true "street" riding. more just haulin' jazz DH in the city, like the annual race, but against a car... so check it out.

    I like it when he's layin' down tread on the wall corners railin' those corners!

    The whole thing was obviously staged.... so what?
    Pretty cool, if you ask me.

    really? tv is planned out?




    seriously though, Top Gear seems to keep things as accurate as possible I do believe, as they typically do very high dollar comparisons for each episode... this just happens to be the only one featuring a bicycle that I am aware of.
