This Is Peaty Season 3 has come to a close, after one hell of a year. The rise of the rat, endless laughing and another packed season full of travelling around the globe with Mountain Biking's biggest legend to date.
It seems a long time ago since Episode One back in 2012...Like we've always preached, It was all about keeping things fun from the start with TIP.
Remember this thing? The little Ape bought on a trip to San Romolo is still going strong back home at the Peaty household!
There's been some huge ups and downs over the last 3 seasons of racing for Steve and the rest of the Syndicate. Long time friend and photographer Sven Martin consoles Peaty with a beer after flatting at Windham 2012...
Leogang Worlds... What could have been for Steve with a crash in the final chute. As usual though spirits were kept high with his 40th Birthday party after along with Greg's Worlds win.
You forget how talented all of these guys are on any terrain or type of bike. A trip to Fenasosa saw Greg open up his trick bag, whilst Steve and Josh tried to get things upside down...
The main aim of TIP was to bring you closer to Steve and co outside of the racing too. It's not an act, both Steve, Rat and all their mates do have a tonne of fun both at home and whilst racing professionally around the world. The Syndicate is a special grouping of individuals, much more than your average race team, all with huge personalities which keep both the fans and everyone around them inspired and entertained.
One of the more stupid ideas throughout the years... A visit to Andorra to see an old friend Cedric Gracia. Head bonk to rag-doll, the day before practice, during Season 2 Episode 4... NFG.
Steve and co have some of the most loyal fans on the circuit. Here the infamous 'Ivan' gets a haircut post Minnaar win at South Africa Worlds.
Patriotic Peaty. As everyone knows, Steve is proud to be born and bred from Sheffield in the UK. Racing and riding back home with mates is what he loves best, especially when it involves a shot of confidence rum.
Classic textbook Peaty style.
The day before practice in Cairns... Syndicate household olympics.
The story between Peaty and his long lost son Ratboy is a genuine as friendships get on the circuit. After bringing him all those years ago, to see him rise to his first World Cup overall win this year was a huge thing for both of them. On and off the track they both keep things sideways, like father like son....
It can't always be a fairytale ending, but what an ending it was out in Hafjell.
Both Steel City Media and Steve can't thank all our fans and sponsors enough for the support over the last few years.
