Video: Four by Three–Dan Atherton’s Enduro
Dan Atherton's ride at Megavalance.
After Dan Atherton broke his neck in a riding accident in 2010, an injury that nearly took his life, he found himself facing a difficult decision. The man himself declares that he was ‘done’ with racing bikes. However, as time passed, Atherton’s hunger to ride and compete grew stronger and his discovery of enduro racing saw him return to competition with new focus.
This new film takes a revealing look at the incredible mental and physical demands that come with riding this discipline. We follow Dan Atherton to the infamous Megavalanche race – a test of both downhill skill and endurance. Atherton commented on the event, “There’s a limit to everybody, I definitely felt my limit when I got to the climb….you’ve got to race it to feel that pain.”
