Weekday Watch: Trackside with Steve Peat by Anthill Films and Shimano

What a weekday treat. Go Trackside with Steve Peat in this brilliant short film by Anthill Films and Shimano.

Here’s what Anthill say about the film with Steve Peat:

TRACKSIDE, our latest Shimano Originals short film, uncovers the winning formula of one of the greatest downhill mountain bike teams of all time; the Santa Cruz Syndicate. After struggling with retiring from racing, legend and Head Coach Steve Peat continues to steer the ship into a new format this season while preserving the Syndicate’s secret sauce.

Looking at athletes at the top of the sport, we often assume they have their lives dialled. They’re considered role models: disciplined, confident and successful. But as sportsmen and women, they can still struggle with what comes next.

For Steve Peat—who initially joined the Syndicate in 2006 and is still one of the most successful DH racers ever—retiring from racing posed many questions. Diving into the low point in his career, we reveal how Peaty’s struggle and transition to Syndicate Head Coach has filled the void of not racing World Cups. Now, he brings his wisdom, personality and stories to the team, not just his performance on the bike.

If you love downhill, make sure you have the full collection of Hurly Burly, our downhill yearbook. Cheers!
