i think Steve Peats first go at the World Championships was quite some time back, in 1993 if i remember right, a long time ago. He's been runner up four times, enough to break any mans heart and on top of that he's had some rotten stinking luck along the way but this time the jinx slid off him like water over glass.
The whole show is on over on the freecaster website so you can watch the replay there sometime today, it's a nailbiter for sure. In the meantime this is what he said about being in his mid thirties and still having the desire and motivation to keep racing year after year. Also bear in mind it was recorded the same weekend that he just pulled this incredible achievement off.
Congratulations Steve form all of us at howies, it's been a long time coming kid. Here's a little bio below.[/youtube]
