World Champ Seals Rally Victory with Palletforce

World downhill mountain bike champion Gee Atherton successfully swapped two wheels for four to take a stunning victory on the Wales Rally GB National Rally.

Driving a Ford Fiesta R2 and backed by Palletforce, the Red Bull rider won his class and finished 15th overall on the event, which ran alongside the UK’s round of the FIA World Rally Championship.

Despite having just a handful of rallies under his belt, Atherton set a number of impressive stage times to finish one place ahead of legendary five-time British Rally Champion Jimmy McRae.

Wales Rally GB is the toughest rally event in the UK, taking in some classic forest stages across mid and north Wales. Its traditional date at the end of the season means competitors have to tackle some tough conditions including muddy tracks and slippery special stages.

But Atherton used his off road experience to deliver a cool performance, not putting a wheel wrong throughout the three-day event based in Chester.

Gee Atherton said: “It was one of the toughest rallies I’ve done but so much fun and a real experience. We learnt so much over the weekend as these forest roads are a huge challenge and, running after the main WRC field, we had some pretty tough conditions to contend with.

“Taking the class win was a great result and I’d like to thank Palletforce and DMACK for their support.”

Dave Holland, sales and marketing director at Palletforce, said: “Our sporting partnerships have delivered a number of successes this year and one again we’ve partnered with the best. Gee’s worldwide appeal and talent has shone through and everyone at Palletforce passes on their congratulations on a great result.”
