Hey I'm Steve Peat - Ask Me Anything

by Pinkbike Staff  
Thanks Pinkbike for all the questions, fingers are killin me over here! I've got to run, sorry I couldn't answer the rest of the questions

For this edition of Ask Us Anything the man, the myth, the legend Steve Peat will be answering all of your questions. World Champ in 2009, triple World Cup Champion, 17 World Cup wins, 52 World Cup Podiums plus a new film which chronicles his celebrated career "Won't Back Down". If you can't think of a question to ask Mr Sheffield Steel himself, you're having a laugh.

Steve Peat Interview

Starting 10:00am PDT / 6:00pm BDT Tuesday May 13 you can type your questions into the comment box following this article and Peaty will be on the other end to get back to you. Sometimes, your answer will pop up in a few seconds; others may take a while as Peaty will be busy responding to the flood of questions. Everyone who posts a question, large or small, will be taken seriously. To make the process as efficient as possible, try to follow these simple guidelines:

• Keep your questions relative. While this is an 'Ask Us Anything' session, the theme is 'Steve Peat!' Questions related to Peaty specifically are encouraged, but still feel free to ask whatever pressing queries you may have such as personal beer preference, etc.

• Stay on topic. Try to keep your questions on one topic if possible. You can always ask about another item later.

• Try to keep your questions to about 100 words.

• Ask Us Anything is a service to PB readers who are seeking helpful information, not a forum to broadcast opinions or grievances. If you do have a negative issue that you want to ask about, no worries, just keep your complaints relevant and in the context of a question so that it can be addressed in a productive manner.

• Use propping to acknowledge good - or not so good - questions. Bump them up or down to where they belong.

Clay Porter wanted to remind everyone.
The film will go live on iTunes on Tuesday, June 3rd
The film will be shown for free for 24 hours on PinkBike on Tuesday, June 17th

 Seeing as you are still a top DH racer at 39 years old, do you reckon you could be competitive in enduro until you are about 78?

 At least that age mate.

 Do you think being tall is an advantage or disadvantage when it comes to professional racing? At 6'11, I tend to stand out from the crowd a bit, and seeing as you are one of the tallest riders around, I thought you'd have some insight. Beer

 Weirdly enough, Steve Peat is only 6'3" when it seems like he is an absolute giant in the videos. While 6'3" is certainly on the taller side of things of the general population, no where near that special 1% population of 6'11"+ lol. Water, i didn't know you were so tall hah

 Hi Steve,

It's Steve here, the wheelchair fan that you see in Fort William every year...

 What's it like to meet a parent at your sons' school and have to explain to them that you ride bikes for a living and, consequently, are cooler than they are?

 I went to a kids school this morning and did assembly to young kids, it was fun mate. they asked funny questions. As for other parents, my kids go to a small school so I know quite a few of them and it's all good.

 You've ridden a lot of different bikes over the years - Kona, Orange, GT, Santa Cruz, and I'm sure some others as well - but is there one particular race bike that you have the most special memories of? Maybe not "the best", but one that brings back the memories?
  • + 17
 I've got good memories from certain years i rode each of those bikes. I've had the most success on my Santa Cruz I'd say.

 @Thisispeaty

I remember you whipping all our asses at a DH race in the UK years back (1993), if I remember correctly you were riding a fully rigid Kona?

 Hi Peaty,

I've not been riding too long and after an unfortunate incident at Fort Bill, I seem to have developed "the fear" of a few things.
What would you say the best way to "grow some balls" would be?
  • + 59
 Just head back to the crash spot and conquer that again, then build up, set goals of things you would like to do and go for it mate.

 do it as soon as you can again.

 Thanks for being such a great ambassador to the sport and for taking the time for us fans. So nice, and appreciated, that you talk to crowds, make videos, and share your personal moments with us all during your career. I'll probably never meet you, but will always remember the legend of Steve Peat. Keep it going man! Routing for you on every race!!!

 I'm 41 and riding DH bikes for 12 years with no plans to slow down. You've been a huge inspiration for me. My question is: has your fitness and work out emphasis and goals changed as you've gotten older and do you focus mostly on anaerobic training or all around fitness?
  • + 11
 Its certainly changed over the years, i work on all round fitness in the winter but bring in anaerobic closer to the races.
  • + 12
 Not a question as such, just wanted to say hi and remind you that me and my mate helped you and the late great jmc to find a... ahem... 'cigarette', in the dark one night on the lower part of the old malverns dh course. You two asked to borrow our torch. Malverns was good times.

 At our age (I'm about a year younger than you are) we don't recover or heal quite as quickly as we used to. I am a bit awestruck by your ability to keep riding at such an incredible level. What do you do to keep as strong and as healthy as you are?

 what is your pre-race prep like? i'd like to hear your race-day nutrition and warm-up routine. when you look at a race track, are you very methodical? (ie memorizing lines, brake points, where you can get on the gas) or are you more a "go with the flow", instinctive kinda racer?

 I'm also coming up on 40 next month, and I don't know about you, but it's kinda messy me up and confusing my brain a bit.

C) get hammered drunk while partying like a rockstar at the pumptrack? Any thoughts would really help. Thanks!

 Hey Steve, thanks for taking the time to answer some questions.

- What is your favourite Maxxis tread pattern? Do you favour one for DH riding vs Trail riding?
- Do you normally run tubes or tubeless?
- Will all due respect to your current and past sponsors: was it hard to make the switch to Shimano and Fox after such a long relationship with SRAM/Rock Shox?
  • + 9
 I have always loved a highroller.I do switch up for Dh and trail too. Tubes for me on the dh, tubeless on the trail bike. It was tough yes, i have been with Sram 16 years, both have great product but the relationships i had built were hard to move away from.

 Hey Steve,

What's your opinion on the state of WC downhill tracks? Do you think there needs to be more variety, or more technical steep tracks?
  • + 9
 I think variety is always good, you gotta have a bit of everything. There are few tracks that need to be more technical. South Africa was improved this year which was good.

 Hey steve, I'm live neaby Mont-Sainte-Anne. You had your share of succes at this track, Do you miss the early 2000 track with roots and rock all over the place and steep rockface or the track you guys ride now ?

 i do miss the early tracks, they were proper, it all too easy and bike parky now
  • + 3
 I am like yourself from Northern England although I am 20+ years older. When we were in our early teens we used to build our own DH bikes that we called trackers. These were made by straightening the front forks in a grid, putting high bars and heavy tread tires. single speed and rear brake only we used to ride them down the local quarries. Did you ever see or hear of these??
  • + 3
 Peaty! Will you keep racing as long as you're having fun and are still competitive, or do you have an exit plan, or an age in mind when you'd like to retire?

Ps. You're a national treasure and we dont want you to retire ever!

 Steve, went to the live Bike show way back in the 90s/early 2000s(birmingham NEC) and watched you race a pretty sweet indoor 4X (GT Days).

 Hey Steve,

Last summer I started riding dh after years of Xc Am riding not long after I had started I went up to fort bill and rode the track and was feeling really good however towards the end of my trip I was riding at Innerliethen and had a big OTB since then I still haven't got my 'have a go at anything' approach to riding back. My question therefore is how do you gain your confidence back after big crashes like CG's for example? Thanks
  • + 6
 What do you usually eat and drink on race day? Before and after the race?
  • + 15
 Mamma Sessler cookes us the same pre race dinner everytime, Spag bol, tuna salad, pesto pasta, Greens salad. Spot on!!!
  • + 2
 Hey Peaty! Huge fan! I was just wondering, it seems like things sometimes get pretty tense at world cups, although there are clearly a few riders who keep things light and fun. For the most part are riders pretty civil, or are the rivalries quite heated. Also, how do you feel about the direction of downhill, as it seems to be going away from the party/beer drinking culture towards a sport where athletes need to be in superb physical condition. Thanks and best of luck!
  • + 3
 Hey Peaty, cheers for doing this, my question is what do think about the comments that DH courses are getting too mellow and bike parky, are they're any places that are not used that should be for WC track, cheers
  • + 9
 I agree to a certain extent, there are loads of bike parky tracks now. I love the more techy tracks.

 Hey Steve, just a quick one, about suspension setup, when riding in wet/muddy conditions would you run your rebound faster or slower? Also in general do you run your rebound fast or slow on both the fork and rear shock? Any other tips on suspension setup would be appreciated too. Thanks!

 Hey Peaty

First off, Thanks for being such an awesome inspiration to multiple generations of riders. The fact that you started racing when I was in 5th grade is just epic! Ride on! Second, my question: Always wondered, Being from the UK, are you a football fan? Who's your team?

 Peaty... do you ever go drifting with the Rat? I know a few drift kids in the UK that have met him (NOT on a bicycle) before. you guys should come party it up at one of the big east coast drift events with Club Loose in the states one of these days. bunch of drifting, boozing, music, chicks, getting wild, firework fights, halfpipes, good times, etc etc... right up your guy's alley.

Ever consider a cross-up video in This is Peaty? Have a pro drifter teach you some drifting? Take him out on DH bikes and show him some stuff? I know our buddy JR Gittin is a Monster Energy driver and likes mountain bikes... you should team up for a vid. Good luck this season!

 Peaty what is the number 1 tip you can give someone who is relatively new to downhill to advance? ( ie training methods, cross training) do you moto? I have been seriously riding a little under two years, my season is a little short in the rockies but I managed to do some racing this year.
  • + 1
 Besides being a racer, you're also great in jumping hardtails, trialing on cruisers and generally doing everything on a bike. Were you first a great allround rider before you became a great racer, or does the bike control gained during those years in DH make you play with other bikes/styles as well? (general question as every PRO is good in everything from what I've seen)

 You´re a "school" to us, for sure. Really love the fact that you´re almost 40 and still racing in a competitive level. That´s a blast. I know everyone ask you: when are you going to retire? Anyway, my question Do you ever wondered when?? and a familiar question: does your family (wife and son) ever ask you to stop or they are being happy you´re still training and racing until now? are there any familiar pressure? (as a fan, I´m really happy that you´re racing still and I don´t want you to retire as CG and F. Barel). you´re are a truly legend peaty! Stoked for 7th place last race (killing the yong guns with that old school style haha) keep doint it.

 You've probably inspired more youngsters to get into downhill than anyone else (I've been hooked since you signed my helmet (ooh-er) at Ludlow during your GT years in the late 90s). What would you say to a little ripper coming into the sport now and how has it changed since you first started?
  • + 4
 Little rippers do it for the right reason, they just enjoy riding their bikes, i say keep it up lad!!!
  • + 1
 What would you say is the biggest factor for you to no longer to be able to dominate? I mean this with the most respect and you are still AMAZING at what you do, but I am curious as to what you think here. Is it age (losing your nerve a little every year), is it having a family and not having as much time/worried about getting hurt because of them on you or would you say it is simply physical deterioration (young guns having the obvious advantage there)?
  • + 1
 Hey there!! Could I ask - How do you deal with arm pump and hand pains in a run? Has riding for years built up the right muscle groups so you don't have a problem anymore? The new 'This is Peaty' is rad. You're an inspiration! Thanks!

 Hi Steve !

 Hey Steve,
I've been riding for a fair few years now and still enjoy every ride, yet am starting to miss the satisfaction of feeling as though I've improved as a rider on some rides. Is there a personal limit I might have reached? Or do I just need to man up and start throwing myself into stuff gradually further out of my depth? I'm certainly motivated to improve as I love every second of it, but I'm seeing all my riding buddies around me progress in leaps and bounds and I cant keep up! (I'm by no means saying I've got so good I cant improve)

You seem like the perfect person to ask this question as you are so unbelievably good yet still seem to find ways to improve!

I'm sure you get people say they're massive fans so often but to have such an idol to look to who's from the UK means so much to me!

 You should come to La Pinilla Bikepark in Madrid , Spain ! They are working hard this year! (lot of BEERRR is waiting u)

 Hi Steve, what do you think it would take to get DH mentioned on BBC sports news? Considering the international success, you and many other Brits have enjoyed, do you consider yourself somewhat underappreciated, in comparison to a road cyclist for example?

Wishing you many more years at the spearhead of the world cup circuit. Cheers, Mike.

 Steve, thanks for spending the time to answer our questions. I've always been a fan since seeing you're segment in Seasons, you're dedication and passion is what helped inspire me to ride a bike again. My question is who are some of your favorite riders outside of the Syndicate Team and do you ever ride with them? Cheers to a productive season!

 I have lots of friends on the World cup circuit, its fun riding with Brook, Stevie Smith, Marc Beaumont, my SPS team here inthe uk.

 Hi peaty, I'm pretty New to DH, only recently bought a DH bike. been eyeing up Peatys drop the last couple of times I've been up there now, Only trouble is I'm pretty crap at jumps/drop offs. my normal attitude is act first think later.. would you have hit it without really knowing what you're doing?.. and any suggestions on how to?.

Cheers man!
  • + 1
 Peaty - Thanks for taking the time to do this. You have been in the game a long time and seen multiple reinventions of the sport and race scene. Could you talk about how you have adapted your training, nutrition, and race prep over the course of your career?
  • + 1
 Hi Peaty,

Do you think if he gets a clean, mechanical and mistake free run this could be the year the Rat gets his first win, and what would it mean to you to see your pet rat finally get a win?

You're some absolute legend!
  • + 1
 Can I ask, if you are not invincible do you experience any chronic pains and injuries and how you might deal with riding with aches and anything besides drugs and alcohol to dumb down the naggy back pain type of junk that I get in my old age, (at 29).
  • + 5
 Someone has to ask this! Boobs or Ass?
  • + 9
 Boobs followed by ass
  • + 1
 what aches and pains you got and what do you take for them. how often do you hit the gym what's the routine . have you and rat boy ever had a serious fall out and fight yet and then apologised to one another cos shit happens right. I only took up mountain biking because I stopped partying 3 years ago still cant wheelie do that manual thing through puddles tail whips not even tiny ones scrubs and those step ups I just go round them the only drop off I can do is when I got to the toilet am keepin it clean here. last question what bugs you and don't say questions like these ones. hope to get a reply cos most superstars are w..kers .
  • + 4
 Do you have any pre race rituals? if so, how or why did they become a ritual?

 hey steve, i'm looking for some racing advice. how many practice laps do you usually put in on practice days before the race? will you put in a bunch of laps on the line u want then try out different lines in a few more laps, or do you try and dial in the line you want?
  • + 1
 hey steve i am 15 and just started downhill on a 2005 giant dh team that is my first dh because i tried downhill at highland mountain bike park in new hampshire for the first time last year and fell in love with it, so i was wondering what age you started downhilling and where, you are one of my influences since i want to try racing this year, any tips for me.

 Do you have more video project coming after Won't Back Down that you are allowed to talk about ?

 Steve!!!! This isnt going to be a question, just wanted to say you're an absolut legend and a very big inspiration! Keep shredding man Cool
  • + 1
 So cool you took the time and thanks PB! Peaty I got a chance to meet you last year at Sea Otter. I felt like a silly girl coming up to meet you. You were so nice and humble, it was a complete honor man. I remember being totally stunned by the whole SCS team, not only because you guys are larger than life on bikes but because you are literal athletic giants. I didn’t get into riding until my mid-thirties but it has changed my life. I don’t really have a competitive bone in my body but I have the utmost respect and appreciation for how you represent yourself as a competitor. Your career, skills and passion keeps me so motivated and so stoked to ride. Thanks brother man, cheers to you always!

I think that you and Ratboy ought to do a 70s themed cop show that somehow always ends in you guys chasing bad guys on bikes. Any chance that could happen?
  • + 1
 Steve!!! have a Great time!
My Question is... What to do to perform and upgrade skills on biking?
I mean, I'm practice a little DJ, and no problem, but I rode a DH bike, and I got injured few times, any Tip, or advice to be better Rider in any modality in bikes, You are the greatest DH Rider!! I followed you few years ago, and i'm glad to know this sport, thanks to you in high part, better than soccer (suks)
Regards from Mexico!!

 Hi Steve,. I race on that Sant andreu dh and was my first race ever. This was a dream come true and it was not easy because I turn 41 just a week before the race and I was a little bit worried if race could turn a bad idea at all, but I have to say that it was one of the best decisions I made in my entire life and it was truly inspirational to see you doing a second place against an horde of 20 somethings. I hope we will see you again next year!

 hi peaty, you started riding before me, and i like you was into the downhilling side when it was in its infancy, greg herbold, john tomac, even jmc on our side of the pond, i quit the sport and over last 2 years started riding again, it was amazing to see you still on top, even at your age and mine, how has your training changed over the years to keep you on top! by the way not too far from sheff, we're in lincoln!
  • + 1
 Hopefully its not your last year at the World Championships but I just thinking for the race this year you should get Troy Lee to do the same paint job on your helmet as the one you had on for your first win at Snoqualmie Pass in 98 with the Union Jack on the mouth piece and the chequered flag on the peak and the top !
  • + 2
 Do you think the sport is getting far too serious and all the other riders should be like yourself and the rest of your team? I mean you, Josh and Greg can still have a beer/ a good time and be at the top of your game.
  • + 3
 Yes they should.
  • + 1
 A decade or so I remember reading an interview with you where you complained about how the women racers were slowing down the progression of the sport because the course had to be modified to be made easier with smaller jumps etc. How do you feel about this sort of thing now? Or is my memory totally screwed up and you've never thought anything like that?
  • + 1
 Hey Peatydawg (in my best ratboy voice) I'm not a whole lot younger than you but since I started racing in 2008 you've always the rider that inspires me the most.

I attended Sea Otter this year with the hopes of checking off one of my bucket list items "A high five from Steve Peat". well with the UCI schedule change that will have to wait until next year. Would you mind throwing up a digital one?

Keep ripping and don't ever retire.
  • + 1
 Hey man, so, round 3 of the UCI World Cup is approaching, (I'm going!) do you think that you or Ratboy get onto the podium? Also, what goes through your mind when at the top of a track, waiting to make your run?

Thanks man! You're a legend!
  • + 1
 Hi Steve, I came out to Cairns to watch you and the Syndicate boys shred. Nice work on your top ten result, and great to see Josh is getting onto the podium. I heard you had some issues with your back and could only manage a few practice runs, I also have back issues especially when riding my trail bike, climbing really causes pain. While I'm riding my V10 I'm pain free. What's the problem with your back and what do you do to strengthen it for riding? do you set up your bike in a certain way? Great work over the years mate, I hope you keep going hard for as long as possible.
