Peatys Steel City Downhill 2017

Peaty's Steel City DH is one of the most anticipated events of the Outdoor City's mountain biking calendar. The 'biggest little race' returns to Greno Woods for its seventh year on Saturday 20th May. Steve Peat - newly retired from World Cup racing - and friends are working hard to make sure that this year’s race is better than ever.

The Steel City DH is organised and run by a dedicated group of volunteers who raise money to build and maintain MTB trails around Sheffield. The annual race is a family affair, featuring riders from 10 to 70, and parents alongside kids. Last year, 200 riders took part, and were cheered on by over 2000 spectators. Peaty himself himself raced to victory last year and the top step of the podium, while Tracy Moseley won the elite women's race with a time that put her 14th overall.

If you fancy an electrifying day's riding deep in the woods, entries open in March. Join the Peaty's DH mailing list to be the first to know how to enter!
