Hey guys, admin Shawn has very kindly let me share the following with you, I hope you find it of interest!

‘The Atherton Project’ Reality Show

Red Bull’s brand new reality online 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 the 2009 UCI World Cup Series and the World Championships in Australia, where Rachel and Gee will defend their 2008 crowns.

The series promises to delve deep into their lives, especially life away from the training routines and competitions. Viewers will get an unprecedented insight into what makes the amusing trio click as the series unfolds. All aspects of family life will be uncovered; nothing will be left to the imagination, even the areas usually reserved just for family and friends!

The first seven episodes in the online series are available to watch now on the Atherton Project You Tube channel.

I believe Clay is doing things like he did with Yeti. Basically he's covering the Athertons this year, and Red Bull is paying all the expenses. He's still filming all the other regulars and should be putting out a DVD again.


Remember the Lumber yard, go balls out.

eps10 was great and I can't believe Dan was #69.

Dan says "I do hours and hours and hours of gatestarts and its obvious its not working".

Seems he needs to learn the motto of "Practice doesn't make perfect, only PERFECT practice makes perfect".

And these managers and coaches sure do 'know' everything. I have worked with some of the best dual/4x riders in the world and never had to talk em up this much. Is all the 'pump' up and negative criticism to Dan just for the show?
