I was once a World Champion…sort of.

Here’s a GoPro video of me winning the TiS Dual Slalom World Championship at Peaty’s house in 2011. Well, the ghetto equivalent. Thanks to WideOpenMag for the video.

I just realized that the ‘ghetto’ in the above paragraph might be a little misleading. I’m not saying Steve Peat lives in a ghetto or that the farm I was at was the ghetto equivalent of Peaty’s house, but rather that this particular “World Championship” was a bit of a ghetto affair. It wasn’t sanctioned by the UCI, so I won’t be wearing a rainbow g-string anytime soon and it was only called a World Championship because there isn’t such a thing in dual slaloming so why not claim it.

Anyway, besides winning a teddy bear at the Puss In Boots pantomime in Coventry, 1989, and being victorious at the Godney village fair raffle in 2001, this was my greatest achievement.

This was precisely the look some unlucky lady saw after a night out in Corporation nightclub. Allegedly. Winner winner chicken weiner.
