Video: Steve Peat's Segment From GAMBLE Film

The King of the fackin' North. Santa Cruz Bicycles presents Steve Peat's GAMBLE film segment.

Steve Peat's segment from GAMBLE Film was conjured up through a collaboration of local love for all things two wheels and a vision to create something personal in the heart of the Outdoor City, Sheffield. The industrial heritage of this city has left some pretty old and unique backdrops which provided the locations for both the main poker intro and Steve's segment.

Being the the most 'Old School' out of the crew, we though it was fitting to show him and his cronies taking charge whilst cruising the streets of his kingdom... Rounding up a crew of mates, shutting a street down and donning some weapons in broad daylight made for a unique day out filming. Only made funnier by the challenge of trying to act 'tough' on camera without laughing...

The once famous ski village was the victim of arson a few years back and was left for dead unfortunately, with weeds and rubbish taking over the landscape of a once thriving location. With help from Sheffield City Council, local trail building company 'Bike Track' and the big man himself, we came up with a plan on how to lease some life back into the hill, with the aim to leave both a track and precedent for the future of the site.

Since then we're stoked to hear that the new landlords are currently in the planning stages of a complete re-development of the area, including not only MTB trails but skiing, accommodation, retail and more.

After nearly three weeks of clearing, shaping and sculpting, the hill was given a new haircut, still rough around the edges, but with a new, unique line weaving its way down the inner city slopes with a pretty rad back drop to boast.

The whole idea of this segment was to bring together some of the key elements of Steve's home, the inner city greenery on offer, thriving local riding scene and a local band that goes by the name of the 'Arctic Monkeys' that you may have heard of...

With the way the terrain and dirt is on that hill, we had to get creative and lean towards the more 'machine built' and flowy side of things, something which Steve isn't normally associated with when filming in the past. When it came to day one of shooting he admittedly hadn't touched his DH bike for a good while, but once the first hits and warm up laps were out fo the way that classic Steve Peat style, plus some new school tweaks started to get thrown in, high above the city skyline.

There are too many people to thank who made this segment possible, but keep your eyes peeled for a potential event on the site in 2019 and another GAMBLE Film segment dropping the end of this month...

 Love the comments of 'Pete still ripping it' as if hes too old to be riding like this. The game has changed, dudes are ripping it into their 50's guys!
  • + 14
 Yes! As a proud 44 year old myself, I fully agree with @Imabigboy82 . Ride till the wheels (and legs) fall off! Headed to Whistler and Crankworx next week!

 Seriously lol...the dude is only 44, still in his prime! I'm 30 and ride avg 4 days a week, have a good buddy who is 48 and does trans BC enduros, socal enduro series...just kills it. Crushes me on climbs and keeps up on descents. I love riding with him because he reminds me I still have a long fun filled life ahead of me not just riding bikes, but shredding em!

 one thing though... the moment you wear “old guys rule” t shirt and mention Steve Peat as an example of old guy still ripping, as if you did, using his image to boost your own persona - you are old. You are a legitimate old dog smelling his own farts he can’t trust. White thick hair will grow out of every single orifice in your body and crystals can appear in your pee anytime. Don’t be an old dog. Put on a wife beater and hit the park.

 I'm just sitting here watching 10 year olds and 50 year olds both shredding harder and going bigger than me...

 Steve could do a skid through a cow turd and somehow make it one of the most amazing clips ever!

 Legend! He may be getting a little old to put up the 0.01s against the young guns, or just got tired of all the travel of the World Cup, but I will never get tired of watching his style. Hope he keeps filming into his 50s and beyond.

 A great segment for the great man.

 Not saying it isn't good riding (it is), but hardly necessary to have a dual crown fork and that much travel to do it on that smooth of a track. Let's see it again with a single crown and maybe even a hard tail, or at least less suspension - can't hide mistakes so easily. Smile

 Steve Peat should get a Mac Askill course about how to bunny up inside a truck without any `help`Smile
Just kidding...

 Is that a new uplift venue in Sheffield?

 No it's the old ski village. There are some plans developing with Extreme group to do something with the site but not much info yet.

 @steveh951: Looks like it would make a good venue

 @nrpuk: We were doing some testing of the drag lift at the ski village for bikes before it burnt down and closed. We were about ready to start some public trials when the fire happened. Hopefully the new plans may allow something similar.
