Heat and Dust! The 7th episode of Atherton diaries proves categorically that Gee’s rowing boat skills are severely lacking, sees Muddy shoe-horned into Gee’s rally car despite being “ about a foot and a half too tall” and follows Rach as she gets back on her bike for the first time since that Fort William dislocation (Gee’s back on bike footage post his Fort William hip already lined up for ep8!!) . Then we head off to World Cup Round 4 Andorra for some scorching racing!

Gee’s interest in rallying has been documented previously but this is the first ever footage of him shredding the 900 acre Forest Experience in his 2017 car. Ice-cool co-driver Keaton Williams is on hand to shout “go faster” at every corner but Muddy is going nowhere till a safe word is agreed!

Meanwhile Rach is excited then “bloody scared” to get back on her bike for the first time since Fort William, after 3.5 runs of a 30 second track she realises just how far she has to go so it’s the perfect time to chill out and recharge when the Dyfi crew to take Olly’s new handmade sauna for a trip to the lake .

In Andorra Rach is struggling to switch it up into race mode but the track is such fun that she soon forgets the pain in her shoulder –once she’s in the start gate she just can’t help it! 4th place! Kade is 3rd for his second World Cup podium in the juniors and there’s a sunset Jeep adventure with wild foals!!
