Atherton Project episode 6

Episode 6 of The Atherton Project begins with the family fitting in some much-needed relaxation back home in Wales. For Gee, this involves sitting in a wheelbarrow and being towed around at lightning speed by a quad bike, offroad. Of course.

Then it’s on to Leogang in Austria for Round Four of the World Cup, with the Athertons still on a high from Fort William. Some huge crashes from Rachel in qualifying cause her to wonder if she’s pushing that bit too hard.

Is it time for her to rethink her game plan? Meanwhile Gee’s World Cup rivalry with Greg Minnaar continues – who’s going to come out on top after Round 4?
