Last weekend I made a last minute trip up to Sheffield to Steve Peat's Steel City DH race..:: In its 6th year it has built up quite a following and reputation as the biggest grassroots race out there and it lived up to that alright !!
With a sell out entry and a steady stream of spectators arriving all morning with trolleys full of beer it was set to be a good day !
With the snow scraped off the start ramp practice could begin. Fortunately it's an all weather track and the crazy rain and snow made no impact on the race track, it was hard pack and flat out from top to bottom.... I felt a few nerves as I had never ridden here and people just expect you to rock up and win without any practice when I had seen people posting pics for the last few weeks practicing the track !
Fortunately I managed to jump in behind Steve for one of my 3 practice runs and quickly got towed up to speed !!!
It was a really fun day, even in the snow flurries and minus temperatures and the host of great food and drink made for a great day out.
A huge thanks to Steve and all his crew for putting on such a fun event..::it reminded me of how racing was when I first started 20yrs ago !
