Atherton Diaries – Cows, Cannons and Crashes

Watch out for cans of soup!

In the fourth episode of The Atherton Diaries comes injuries, wins, and some ‘creative’ Go-Pro mounts.

Follow the Athertons from their local (and previously unseen) tracks at Dyfi, to Taiwan with Dan to ride some e-bikes with Trek and then back to Fort William for another brutal round of the British Downhill Series.

You’ll also see successes and crashes for the Atherton Academy, with Gee being hospitalised with a dislocated hip and his process to recovery, beautiful ice baths and some rather ‘creative’ uses for a Go-Pro.

Just watch out for flying soup cans.

Atherton Racing said: ” Gee gets injured at Fort William. In the fourth episode of the Atherton diaries the team get highly experimental with some home-made GoPro mounts, enjoy the Dyfi sunshine and race the brutal British Downhill Series at Fort William. Dan travels to Taiwan, Rach and Muddy take the world’s most scenic ice bath but Gee ends his “low-end” week in the hospital with a dislocated hip.

Do not try this at home! The home-made Go-pro mounts in the Dyfi seem pretty outlandish – until Gee and his friend Rob Marsh get involved with their cannon cam! Tree trunks and tins of tomatoes are all pressed into service in the quest for the perfect shot!
There’s more stunning footage of so far unseen sections of Dan’s Dyfi Bike Park and at the opposite extreme Dan takes his electric bike for a spin with the crew form Trek Taiwan!
Fort William British Downhill Series sees successes for the Atherton Academy as Mille takes the win and Luke takes 3rd place but there’s trouble for Kade as he crashes out and Gee ends his week in the hospital.”
