Video: Gee Atherton at the Red Bull FoxhuntOriginally posted on October 10, 2013 at 16:37 pm
One of the more creative mountain bike race formats is the Red Bull Foxhunt, a tangled mess of riders “hunting” Gee Atherton down Rostrevor Mountain Bike Trails in Northern Ireland. Watch as 400 riders, dressed in matching red hunting jerseys, slip and slide their way down the mountain in pursuit of the pro. Last year only one rider managed it but this year 30 out foxed the Fox. First place went to Colin Ross who thundered into the finish line arena with a good lead ahead of last years winner Greg Callaghan of Dirt Norco with Joe Barnes of the Dudes of Hazzard in third.
