      The worst kept secret in mountain biking has been confirmed – the Athertons are on GT bikes for 2012. They’ll be joined by fellow Brit and current GT rider Marc Beaumont on the new GT Factory Racing squad.

      Rumours had been flying since November, when it emerged that Dan, Gee and Rachel had parted company with Commencal after five years. Prior to that they’d ridden for Giant and Muddy Fox.

      While Gee and Rachel will continue to race downhill – with a bike swap from the alloy Commencal DH V3 to the carbon fibre GT Fury – Dan will make the switch to the burgeoning discipline of gravity enduro following a tough 2011 after breaking his neck in 2010. We expect to see him on the 150mm-travel Sanction and Force. Marc will race both disciplines.
