Programme 4: Italy

The fourth programme features professional athletes Tarja Owens and Niall Davis from Bray and Dublin who move to northern Italy for the better mountain cycling training resources.

There they plan to set up a mountain biking tour business. As professional athletes they earn very little and their career is short.

Tarja has saved long and hard to fund the move and hopes to build a viable business during their six-month trial move. She makes a tentative start on setting up the business with the help of local hotel owner Merco but it becomes clear that Niall's focus is on training and the future of their move to Italy will hang in the balance.
