This Is Peaty – Season 2 – Episode 4
It’s been a busy few weeks since Val Di Sole for Peaty…
The 2nd World Enduro series was a huge change from the inaugral round out in Punta Ala… Plenty of downhill, which allowed the Syndicate to shine, with top 10 finishes for all of them!
After a stressfull week on the GXC circuit, they needed some down time out in St Tropez. Sun, sand and Bryceland’s arse, before heading home for National Champs… Which turned out to be a belter of a course, fast and dusty in the height of the British Summer…could this be Steve’s 10th title?
Non stop trucking out to the 2nd World Cup round in Andorra, whilst calling in at an old friends, for some cappuchinos and bike park action…. Cedric Gracia everyone!

Lenzerheide Bike Park with Jack Peden
Like us on Facebook:
I recently embarked on a five day trip to Lenzerheide, a picturesque mountain resort in the Swiss Alps. I spent two days shooting this mostly self-filmed and self edited video. The trails include the blue run from the top of the Piz Scalottas, and the freeride/downhill trail from the Sharmoin, enjoy!
Through My Eyes: Black Hole Bike Fest 2013
When I was in Koroska, Slovenia to film for The Blast #4 there was actually another event going on in the region as well. The Black Hole Bike fest consisted of a marathon race and one race of the Slovenian Enduro Series, as well as a number of parties and a prologue in the middle of town. Being there with my camera already, I couldn’t help it and started filming a lot. I threw this quick edit together for the organization, enjoy!
Megavalanche 2013 – Qualifikation
The view from the field
Charge TV: Week 22: Kye’s Cooker
Kye Forte has been an active, professional BMX rider for over ten years now with an impressive contest history. He has his own signature BMX parts and has many appearances on multiple magazine covers, billboards and advertisements.
Known for his positive attitude and professional commitment, Kye has also achieved great things on and off his BMX, including the concept of the hugely successful Red Bull Empire Of Dirt Event and the Oakley National Trails Championships. In this video Kye shows us what he can do on his Red Bull Weavers X Charge Cooker bike.
Red Bull Weavers was a dual slalom downhill bike race like no other; it put the rider’s skills and precision to the ultimate test. The course was cut into the shoulder-high wheat crop, and featured steep declines, blind corners and tight-lines to test the mettle of the competitor.
We assembled 12 Custom bikes with the help of SRAM and Rockshox. These bikes were custom painted 2013 Cooker single speed frames that used custom 60mm Reba Rockshox forks and SRAM / Truvativ build kit, the perfect tools for the job. A few of the bikes were given to the winners of the event, the others were given to a select group of pro riders … Kye was one of the chosen riders.
Crazy Horses: an MTB movie
Here’s the highlights from our week in Destination X, that’s Areches-Beaufort in the French Alps, with TrailAddiction all set to the sounds of the 70’s with The Osmonds and Crazy Horses.
Thanks to Wobble for the pipe music at the start and no, apparently it’s not a Didgeridoo even though it looks and sounds like one.
A great week and some great riding was had by all.
Jaws on Big Bike!
