This is Peaty 2014 Episode 6

Steve and the team are back for another bumper episode of This is Peaty! It was the year of the Rat on 2014, after an amazing season Josh pulled out the win of his life taking the overall title in Meribel. A couple of weeks later it all went wrong as he overshot the landing on the last jump at Meribel and smashed his foot to bits. After going fastest in practice Josh took 2nd in qualifying even after losing a load of time with a crash setting himself up for the last race of the season perfectly. We all know what happened from here on and Josh taking the win was the perfect way to round off the season!

Hafjell was a different story though and even though everyone was pumped for the track in Hafjell it was going to be a race to remember for all the wrong reasons. It seems that a combination of a really clean and fast wood section, a few pedal strokes and no brakes culminated in Josh’s massive huck to flat and his busted foot. After getting some Morphine inside things soon calmed down and the interview at the end just shows that Josh takes a lot of positives away from this year and didn’t actually seem too bothered about Worlds. There’s always next year Rat!

Here’s some bangers from Duncan Philpott for you too, we know how to treat you don’t we!
