Peaty wasn’t lying when he said it’d been a hectic couple of weeks since the first UCI World Cup round.

Starting with the annual pilgrimage to the Scottish Six Day Trial with James Dabill, then onto the Swiss Alps with Claudio Calouri to scout a new World Cup track for 2015…

All of this was perfect training for Peaty’s home race, ‘Steel CIty Downhill’, the world biggest/smallest downhill race.
An amazing weekend, with a huge turnout… did Steve take his 4th win in a row?

When you think Australia, you think dry, barren and dusty. Cairns was certainly the opposite, which made for a memorable week of both racing and off the bike adventures.

Catch up with Steve and co for the fully story and more in Episode 2!
