The Commencal Supreme DH bike ridden by Gee,

Dan and Rachel Atherton is the most successful

race bike of the 2008 downhill season. Is it?

Well of course it is. With prototype suspension,

geometry, and given all the care and attention

from a pair of wily old Irishmen (the Atherton

mechanics Steve Bell and Skinny) this is the bike

loads of people would like to get their hands on.

The fact that both the family and the company

have got their act together working to get good

equipment is one of the many factors that have

enabled the Athertons to considerably step up

their game this season. But how different is it

really from the bike you can buy?
