Episode 3 of The Atherton Project kicks off with a visit from pro trials biker and viral internet sensation Danny MacAskill, who takes the gang out for a spot of inspirational riding around Llanrhaeadr, much to the locals’ bemusement. Dan reflects on how post-injury he’s become so much more aware of the risks involved, and visits the dirt jumps that took him out of action last year still unsure if he’s properly over the crash.
Then it’s off to Fort William for one of the biggest races of the season, and Dan’s first proper race back in the saddle. Year after year, Fort Bill never disappoints, and the home crowd is always able to push the riders even harder – can the team overcome technical problems and secure podium places?
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
