Star mountain bike family farewells Queenstown


Mountain biking celebrities the Atherton siblings have quit Queenstown after a two-month training stint. 

The talented trio Dan, 29, Gee, 26, and Rachel, 23, raved about the resort as the top Southern Hemisphere training destination while they were here, particularly with bikers getting gondola access to Bob’s Peak. 

Gee dragged his sports star siblings to Queenstown after filming a chunk of adventure bike flick Follow Me on local terrain in January last year. 

“I saw how good it was and how much potential it had for us to come for pre-season training with the Skyline gondola opening up to bikes,” Gee told Mountain Scene in March. 

“It’s got everything we need here all in one place.”
