A quick update for anyone heading to Steve Peat’s Steel City DH in Sheffield next weekend – they’ve got a bit of a raffle going to help raise money for the Greno Woods appeal. They’ve got some cracking prizes including a Cotic BFe frame, a signed Steve Peat
jersey, loads of 5.10 kit, Smart Wool socks, Bradfield Brewery beer and best of all (we would say this) a load of Singletrack Magazine subscriptions, T shirts and other bits and bobs.
Tickets are on sale now for only £1 and all money goes direct to the Charity. Tickets are on sale now, please contact SteelCitySeries@gmail.com, talk to one of the organisers or come along on race day and get them direct off the Wildlife Trust.
Santa Cruz main man Rob Roskopp has also been incredibly generous and has given a Santa Cruz Nickel frame to auction off. The frame will be signed by Steve Peat and is worth at least £1,300. Bids are now being accepted via the email bidding hotline at SteelCityBids@Gmail.com. Email your Name, Address, Phone Number and Bid and they’ll add you to the list. Bidding will continue on race day where your details will be taken by the Wildlife Trust. The highest bid currently stands at £500 and all money is going direct to the Charity – so please be generous.
We took a little preview of the course the other day – you can check it out here – and Benji, Matt and Jon are going to be heading down to do the race as well as checking out the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival with Alex Rankin’s exclusive screening of Progression that’s going on at the same time.
