Fuelled by Monster Energy, Episode 2 takes you from the first SPS training day down at UK Bike Park, where the whole team gets a first hand insight into what they should be doing, in preparation for the first British National round at Comb Sydenham the following weekend.

Race run.

Straight after race runs were wrapped up, it was a long haul through the night up to Stirling, where Steve met up with the guys from MtbCut.tv, to shoot the first in the new series of 'Mojo Trail Diaries', supported by Fox Suspension. This wasn't your ordinary shoot, as the legend himself, Guy Martin was in tow, along with Joe Barnes and Andy Mckenna, for an all star line up. Some amazing locations, mixed with every season mother nature could throw at them... but it all made for good TV as you'll see.

Legend.

Check out the Trail Diaries HERE

It felt like World Cup Round 1 all over again at Val Di Sole. With such a long break, every rider came out swinging on a loose, loamy and outright rough, track. More than a few causalities littered the track throughout the week, which made it feel like more of a battle for survival, than fighting for the win.

A solid run left Steve in 15th come finals, placing him 10th overall heading into Round 3 at Fort William...

 07:05 Peaty: Today was good. Tomorrow's gonna be epic.

I have the same motto.

Great vid, very pleasant

 I sort of had the same motto, but I blew it - on the epic day I said: today was epic, tommorrow's gonna be "best ever" - so two days after I got fired, they stole my bike and burned my house
