Episode 4 begins with the team hitting the road as they make the long drive to the next world cup race in Leogang, Austria. Gloomy weather means the track’s not looking its best. Undeterred, Gee’s keen to get a good qualifier and a podium place to get some points in the bank.
Dan’s fast getting reacquainted with the sheer speed of World Cup races, and needs to find his pace if he’s to be in contention.
The team then drop in at the Red Bull Hangar-7 in Salzburg for a high-G spin in one of the Flying Bulls stunt planes. The idea that extreme athletes should be able to take anything thrown at them soon goes out the window, and it’s sick bags at the ready as the team takes to the skies.
Now in its third series, Red Bull’s reality TV series ‘The Atherton Project’ is a fly-on-the-wall show tracking the exploits of the most famous family in mountain bike history. Follow British riders Dan, Gee and Rachel Atherton as they compete in events around the world in the 2011 season.
