Last week it was announced that the Athertons (and Marc Beaumont) had been signed by GT Bicycles for the upcoming race season.
Today first images of their team race bikes have been revealed, here’s how they’re looking. From these photos we can determine the team will race Fury’s equipped with PRO signature components, Shimano Saint transmission and wheels, Continental tyres and Fox suspension.
“Atherton Racing is one of the most progressive teams in the history of mountain biking, and is known for taking the sport to the next level,” said Mark Peterman, Global General Manager GT Bicycles. “We’re excited about the partnership because it both continues GT’s legacy as the brand that helps progressive riders push their limits, and because of the opportunities it presents to develop new products.”
