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.
