“(Crankworx) has definitely been up on the pedestal for me the whole time and to believe that we get to ride in it, it is just crazy,” says Peat as the clip opens.
The video brings viewers to the tiny town of Sechelt, population 8,500, where Peat and his crew of elite riding friends spend their days building trails and practicing tricks as they strive to become the best in the Super Bowl of all slopestyle competitions, Red Bull Joyride, held at Crankworx in Whistler each August.
“The Coast is definitely small. You’re not getting food anywhere after 9 o’clock. We’ve got one bar, no girls, but we’ve got bikes,” says Peat.
He is making the “Steps to the Podium” a top priority by finding home in a place where he can learn from Semenuk’s extreme dedication with the support of the perfect community to fuel his dreams.
“I grew up building jumps and having to turn around and tear them down, so for me, once I saw this, it was like this is freedom. You can walk through the woods and there’s jumps everywhere,” Peat says.
This year Peat placed fifth at Joyride and was among the only riders to execute a clean, complete run before the crowd of 30,000 people, proving his dedication clearly pays off.
"Steps to the Podium" is the third and final episode in a trilogy of stories defining celebration of gravity mountain biking from TELUS, including "The Adopted Child" and "How to Become A Pro Mountain Biker."
