Gee Atherton (shown here at Windham, New York, last year) has been dominating the World Cup circuit this year, where he's currently leading the Elite Men's points race. Gee won his first World Cup event in Schladming, Austria, at 19, in 2004, and then took second at the Red Bull Rampage that same year. He's scheduled to compete in the Rampage again this October (he was there last year, too but he suffered an injury prior to the finals and wasn't able to compete the last day). Gee won the Elite Men's UCI Downhill World Championship in 2008 in Italy, at age 23, the same day his younger sister Rachel won the Elite Women's title.
