Madison will take stock of a limited number of Gee and Rachel Atherton replica models – the same bike used to take both to World Cup victories last year.
Marketing manager Albert Steward told BikeBiz: "After Gee and Rach’s outstanding double win at last summer’s World Championships in Val di Sole Italy, Commencal set the gears in motion to produce something very special to commemorate and celebrate the win. Collaborating with Animal Commencal co-sponsors Shimano, Fox, DT Swiss, Chris King, Sunline, E13 and Maxxis, Commencal set to work on producing an ‘all-singing, all-dancing’ replica of the Atherton’s World Championship winning Supreme DH complete with illustrious rainbow stripe paintjob."
The bike is as close to the Atherton’s race winning setup as is feasibly possible. The Supreme DH World Championship Ltd Edition lands in March.
