You know how to whistle don’t you Steve? You just put your lips together and blow.
Right now Steve Peat is in the States with Brian Lopes and Bas de Bever, driving up to Canada to sort the houses they have bought in Whistler, which is fast becoming the place for anyone connected with mountain biking.
“I’ve bought a house with Bas, it’s just the best place to train and I’m going to need plenty of that after all these injuries. The enthusiasm up there is unbelievable. Lines of people with top quality downhill bikes queuing for the lifts. It’s the new home of downhill.”
No one expects Steve to stay away from his native Yorkshire for long though. He’ll be back in February when he and Adele have planned their wedding.
The Stella brewery is already taking on extra staff.
