Largely agree. To be fair, Gee went through a bit of a 'salty' phase a few years back and didn't always seem to be the most gracious in losing. I think the "Sam Dale incident" probably didn't help with this image but can't really blame him for that. Seems to be much more personable in interviews these days and I think he's probably won back a lot of people by coming back so hard after his injuries. And Rachel is smashing it. Don't see any reason why this will change this season. Be very interested to see how the Atherton bikes go. Like others have said, they'll probably need a mass produced trail bike at a lower price point to keep afloat. Don't think the custom DH bikes are going to bring in too much moolah... Making kids bikes could be lucrative if they get the price/specs/geo right. So many little shredders at Whis last summer.
