After Red Bull decided not to renew the Atherton Project for 2012, filmmaker Clay Porter decided to pitch a new idea: a four-episode mini-series that featured each of the three Atherton siblings in a more in-depth look. While the race-recap style of the past has now become commonplace for top-level athletes and teams, Porter is trying to take the series, titled Four by Three, in a new direction.
The first episode debuts today, and focuses on Rachel Atherton and her annual battle against the Ft. William World Cup downhill race. The Athertons consider it their "home" race, and despite the seeming advantage, it has vexed Rachel for years.
