It’s that time of week again, for a little bit of bike riding viewing to escape the daily toil.
Tune in, brew up and slack off with this week’s Midweek Mini Movies…

This Is Peaty – Season 3, Episode 2
“It’s been a busy few weeks since South Africa!”
Peaty wasn’t lying when he said it’d been a hectic couple of weeks since the first UCI World Cup round.
Starting with the annual pilgrimage to the Scottish Six Day Trial with James Dabill, then onto the Swiss Alps with Claudio Calouri to scout a new World Cup track for 2015…
All of this was perfect training for Peaty’s home race, ‘Steel CIty Downhill’, the world biggest/smallest downhill race.
An amazing weekend, with a huge turnout… did Steve take his 4th win in a row?
When you think Australia, you think dry,baron and dusty. Cairns was certainly the opposite, which made for a memorable week of both racing and off the bike adventures.

Carson Storch – Chromag Bikes
Short MTB film for Carson Storch and Chromag Bikes.
In celebration of the Tour de France Grand Depart on 5th July Timothy Taylor’s has taken to YouTube for the very first time.
The ‘tongue in cheek’ short film, Tucker’s Triumph, set in the Yorkshire Dales, Keighley and Haworth features Roy Tucker, an amateur cyclist, competing against a peloton of professional riders. In the early stages Tucker is clearly struggling but after taking a short cut through Timothy Taylor’s brewery to repair a puncture and the inspiration of a Landlord branded cycle shirt, our hero speeds to victory. For Tucker there is only one way to reward his memorable triumph — a well deserved pint of Landlord, the beer that rewards exceptional taste, in the Fleece Inn, Haworth.
Life Behind Bars – Freeride MTB and horseback riding – Season 3 Ep 4
The Crew heads back to Utah to shoot for Brandon Semenuks “Rad Company”. Doerfling, McCaul, and Zink join Semenuk building and filming lines in the desert. R-dog and Logan join up to do some Freeride Horseback riding at Jacobs Ranch and Brandon’s “Ferrari” horse gives him a run for his money.
Corral Trail: Mountain Bike Community / Forest Service Partnership
