Gee Atherton has beaten Greg Minnaar by just 0.37seconds at the Windham World Cup finals to claim the overall title.
Fastest qualifier Steve Peat was on fire and smoking Gee’s time but went down hard in the drop near the bottom.
But what a race for Gee Man, the amount of pressure that must have been on his shoulders all week, he kept his cool and delivered a killer of a final run to take the win and his first series overall with 1229 points to Greg Minnaar’s 1185.
Gee Atherton: What a season,racing all round the world and it boils down to .37 So stoked to be world cup champion. Massive respect to Greg for the battle.
Greg Minnaar: Awesome season, congrats to Gee…. Good season battling it out with him.
Steve Peat: Gutted ,sore ,pissed off with myself but at least I am good for next week !!!
5 Brits in the top ten overall.
