Peat and Moseley win Euro DH champs

British duo of Steve Peat and Tracy Moseley gave British mountain
biking one

of its greatest ever results, picking up both Elite Downhill titles at the

European Downhill and Dual Mountain Bike Championships in Vars, France.

British and French riders utterly dominated the Championships and there were

further British medals for Helen Gaskell – bronze in the Junior Women’s

downhill – and Peat again – silver in the Men’s Dual.

Peat was delighted to beat his arch rival and world number one, Nicolas

Vouilloz, of France. The pair are currently head and shoulders above the

rest of the world’s downhillers and, although Vouilloz looks set to pick up

the World Cup title, Peat has the satisfaction of beating the Frenchman in

both major championships this year: at the worlds, Peat picked up silver

whilst Vouilloz finished out of the top five.

Thje good news for Mountain bike fans is that Steve Peat and Tracy Moseley

will be competing on British soil this coming weekend when they tackle the

National Championships, being held at Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders.
