The Knife Edge

Date Aug 18, 2021

Gee Atherton’s 'The Knife Edge' is not the glossy action sports edit that we’ve come to know of late. In fact very little has been edited here, so while we get to enjoy the mind-blowing mountain-biking skills and the daring that we associate with Gee’s recent big mountain projects such as 'The Ridgeline' and 'The Slateline', he also talks of the fear he needs to overcome and shows the horrific crash that resulted in many broken bones, a punctured lung and a 2 week stay in the hospital.

Huge thanks to the crew, to the paramedics, Aberdyfi Search and Rescue team, the Air Ambulance who transferred Gee to the hospital and the surgeons at the Royal Stoke University Hospital. Gee is making a rapid recovery without lasting damage.

Jeebus, that's a horrifying crash on an insane line with no room for even the slightest error. Gee's very lucky he's not dead or didn't end up as a quad considering the way his head was flopping around. Good knowing that he's on the mend and will be able to walk again.

He's a very lucky dude to be standing vertically after that
