Video: Steve Peat gets all highlander on his Santa Cruz for Volvo


Former world champ and all-around mountain bike legend Steve Peat just popped up in an online promo video for Volvo UK called “First Up, First Down.” Filmed in the sparsely populated Scottish Highlands, the three minute edit features the 2009 world downhill champ and current Enduro World Series warrior talking about, well, driving his Volvo XC 60 up, and riding his bike down.

After scouting some trails and driving to the summit, Peaty descends slow-jam style meandering through the scenic countryside, down ravines, and over bridges. Though he’d driven to the top, he still ends up descending to his car, which is a good day in our book.

Sheep be like “We’ll drive your whip back to the bottom, no problem champ.”

Though the focus is on the Volvo, Peat’s sponsors Santa Cruz, Monster Energy, Troy Lee, Royal Racing and FOX must be pretty stoked to go along for the ride.
