Today sees the first release in the highly anticipated Atherton short film series, Four By Three. Produced and directed by Clay Porter for Red Bull Media House, the first film focuses on the youngest of the siblings, Rachel, and her relationship with her home downhill mountain bike World Cup race at Fort William in Scotland.
With the last World Cup race of the season taking place this weekend in Norway and with Rachel in the mix to win the overall title, this film gives a fascinating insight into Rachel’s love-hate relationship with the course that has been her nemesis for so many years.
The film takes a revealing look at the intense pressure that comes with riding in front of a home crowd made up of avid fans and family members at the UK round of the World Cup and also the effect that the unpredictable British Weather can have. Of Fort William, Rachel says, “…..past results at Fort William is definitely not my favourite subject” – will the 2012 round be any different?
Amazing riding coupled with next level cinematography defines Four By Three and the first episode has it in spades.
