Peaty’s Steel City Downhill 2012 – Video & Photos

My video from Peaty’s Steel City Downhill race, that happened on Saturday. It’s a little ‘rough around the edges’ in places and everything below the open section was shot in the last 5 minutes of the race, but other than that I’m fairly happy with it. Pictures and words to follow. The race photos are also available to purchase on Roots & Rain, which also has the results:

Back in February, when the ground was wet and muddy, the 8th and final round of the Sheffield Winter Ghetto Dual Race Series went down in some woods in Endcliffe Park. Shane was on on his new Cotic BFe, but was disappointed to come off in qualifying. Irwin qualified, but got knocked out.

Sheffield Winter Ghetto Dual Race Series – Round 3

[10-11-23 Dual Race Rnd3 4783]

The 3rd round of the informal mates race series took place last Tuesday evening in Swinny’s field. In practice it was easy going, but the lines soon got muddy and it was all about holding the slide and staying upright. Of the 16 riders (out of 27) who qualified to race head to head in the dual slalom eliminator, Shane got 5th place and Irwin was 11th. Not only did Shane set the fastest time of the night, but he did it on Jeff’s bike!!! – The long stem and low bottom bracket must have really come into its own.
