Gee whizz – Falcon snatches bait strapped to mountain bikers back

Wonderful if slightly surreal footage, showing what happens when;

Downhill mountain bike legend, Gee Atherton, is hunted by the fastest bird in the world, a peregrine falcon. Set in the epic landscape of Antur Stiniog, North Wales, Gee is tested in the ultimate experiment between man and bird.

Not an everyday occurrence then. But pretty impressive riding nonetheless. For the next video……Lions!

Incidentally, Antur Stiniog is part of the excellent network of mtb trail centres in Wales. For more details of centre locations, click here.
