Northern Father, Southern Son
Steve Peat is proud of is Sheffield roots and he is not shy about it either. From being named ‘Sheffield Steel’ to his star on the walk of fame and the keys to the city, Peaty is whole heartedly a northerner.
Stereotyping is no laughing matter.
Peaty’s legacy in the north spawned a new generation of riders, the likes of ‘Loosedog’ lewis and Rat boy to name a few, equally proud of their northern heritage.
