Episode 3 of The Atherton Project sees the whole crew gearing up for the first UK National of the year in Rheola, South Wales. It’s Rachel’s first proper race back on the bike, and having her competing again raises the spirits of the whole team, but will this positive energy result in podium places?

Then it’s on to Monterey, California for the Sea Otter Classic. It’s the first chance this year to check out just how good the competition are looking after a hard winter’s training. With Gee having picked up a minor injury, he’ll be watching the Downhill from the sidelines for the first time in 4 years, while Dan and Rach face a tough challenge in the punishing slalom event.
