It’s a good thing it got dry and dusty at Lenzerheide, because for a minute there it looked like people were going to start complaining about the track. Normally that would be okay, expected even, but this case was special because the track had Steve Peat’s name all over it. In the MTB world Steve Peat is like the Pope was back in the good old days: he’s old, he’s infallible, and if you question him you get burned at the stake by an angry mob.
Oddly enough, for all the grumblings we heard coming from Greg Minnaar about the track, and all the clips we saw of Steve Peat talking about, extolling the virtues of, and(or) defending the track, we still haven’t seen any clips or heard any blurbs of Greg talking about it with Steve.
And those conversations happened. Those guys share the same pit, same hotel room, dinner table, etc. The topic came up.
I’m pretty sure if video surfaced online of Greg Minnaar complaining about Steve Peat’s course, a black hole would form and the horsemen of the apocalypse would descend and Roskopp would assume his true form and destroy the world.
Questioning Steve Peat is like, well, it’s like questioning Steve Peat. You just don’t do it. And yes Steve, those shoes look great.
