January 27, 2006 – In conjunction with the British web site www.Descent-World.co.uk the Atherton Racing crew are hosting a unique competition to find a 2006 Road Manager for their Animal/Giant Mountain Bike Team.
Gee Atherton: “We’ve decided we really need to step up this year and have someone help us as a real road manager, especially at the bigger events. We’re often too busy riding and training to make sure everything gets done, so having someone help us manage things on the road, and make sure that all of our sponsors are well looked after, that sort of thing, will really help. So we thought it would be pretty cool to open up the hunt for this person through the internet. It’ll be interesting to see how it goes”.
