Steve Peat

Peaty is a professional downhill mountain biker who was born and lives in Chapeltown near Sheffield.
He’s an absolute legend.

Here’s why; DH World Champion, Triple World Cup Champion, 9 time British Champion, Double European Champion, 17 World Cup wins, has competed in over 100 World Cup races and has achieved 52 World Cup podiums (so far).

He started riding bikes from the age of 3 years old, chasing his two older brothers around the streets of Sheffield on a BMX. He then progressed to mountain bike racing as soon as he left school aged 19. Racing at the highest levels for over 25 years, and riding for the Santa Cruz Syndicate team since 2006, Steve’s last World Cup season was in 2016. Are we proud to support Peaty? Just a bit!

SHAUNA COXSEY MBE

Shauna Coxsey MBE is the current IFSC World Cup bouldering champion.

Climbing since the age of four, Shauna has cemented a global reputation as one of the world’s best competition climbers; with a notable track record in outdoor bouldering also.

Earlier this month, Shauna announced her bid to train for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. This will be the first time that sport climbing has been included in the Olympics and athletes will be required to compete across three disciplines – bouldering, lead and speed climbing.

A passionate proponent of widening participation in sport, when Shauna was 18 years old, she established the Women’s Climbing Symposium. Now an annual event which was last year attended by over 400 women, the WCS aims to connect, develop and inspire women to climb, whatever their level.

Shauna is also a trustee of Climbers Against Cancer, a charity to unite the climbing community in supporting Cancer Research which was set up by the late John Ellison.

Kriss Kyle

Kriss Kyle is a professional BMX and mountain biker hailing from Stranraer in Scotland. He’s been riding bikes of all kinds since the age of 10, hitting the streets of his hometown on his trusty BMX honing his considerable skills.

He won his first major competition in 2008 bringing home a trophy at the Transgression Skatepark Jam in Dalkeith, near Edinburgh. Since then Kriss has gone from strength to strength as a full time rider, being able to practice whenever he needs to has given him the edge and skills to succeed.

In 2015 his video, titled ‘Kaleidoscope’ went viral and got just short of a million hits within it’s first 9 days. The future looks very bright for Kriss and we’re incredibly happy to support him!
