Dan Atherton; the majority of you have probably never heard of the name. In a sport that some may argue is undertaken neither for the fame or money, but rather for the sheer thrill of the rush that comes along with it; downhill mountain bike racing is a crazy mans game and Dan is one of the members of the sport that fit this bracket.
Seeking the purest of pleasures in the rush obtained from the ride.
It has been said that the closer to death one lives the more alive one feels. Well Dan may have taken this to heart with this footage showing him on one of his rides. This clip was taken from a GoPro strapped to his helmet as he tackled one of the gnarliest tracks in the world.
