We’re now a third of the way through season three of The Atherton Project – a series giving the inside track on mountain biking’s most famous siblings – and episode four sees the trio hit the road for the World Cup round in Leogang, Austria.


While Rachel and Gee fight it out at the top of the standings, Dan is still getting reacquainted with the speed of World Cup racing following his career-threatening neck injury. They also drop into the Red Bull Hangar-7 in Salzburg for a high-G spin in a Flying Bull stunt plane, causing all three to regret a heavy night out the previous evening.
