Steve Peat World Champion: Seventeen Years in the Making follows Peat from his winter training at home in Sheffield, through eight rounds of the World Cup series and a win at the Lisbon Downtown, to his victory at the 2009 World Championships in Canberra, Australia.

The story is told through a stunning collection of photographs by pro snapper Victor Lucas, with additional images from Sven Martin, Kathy Sessler and Dominic Worrall.
