Mountain Bike Hall of Fame Announces 2018 Inductees
This month, on September 21 and 22, the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame will induct six new members, including two pivotal figures in the Pinkbike community, at a dinner awards ceremony that will take place at the HOF headquarters in the Marin Museum of Bicycling
Steve Peat has been one of the most inspirational downhill downhill racer of the past two decades. His affable manners off track and absolutely driven riding style on course are well known, but I doubt that many of us can count the younger riders that he has mentored, either directly, or with a few chosen words at the right moment.
Josh Bender's go big or go home style is almost as famous as the swagger he threw down during his formative years. Bender's successful "first descents" pale in comparison to the number of spectacular failures that have been recorded on film and viewed by untold millions on the inter-web. The real Josh Bender is quiet and introspective - and he hasn't lost the skills.
Steve Peat and Josh Bender will be inducted beside Leadville Trail 100 founder Ken Chlouber, along with brothers Paul, Simon and Jonathan Kennett, who brought the sport to New Zealand. It should be a great party.
