It’s always hard to draw comparisons between athlete’s worlds apart in different sports, especially with the enormity of the Motorsports industry compared to mountain bikes.
But there are huge similarities between the way fans around the world have embraced both Steve Peat and Ken Block, both ambassadors and icons of their own sports.
A year ago, Ken Block’s annual drift battle Gymkhana Grid came to the UK and Steve was invited to compete in All Stars tournament by ken. Since then the Monster Energy team mates remained in touch and having snuck off for a quick DH ride together a year ago, it was inevitable they would meet up again.
Both equally fans of each other in their own sports, Ken Block’s passion for MTB is no hidden secret but his respect and admiration for Steve Peat is both humbling and testament to Peaty’s career and its ability to transcend sports.
In Episode 2 of #LastOrders Steve heads stateside to hang out with motorsport legend ken Block. With both ken and Steve having young families the pair not only battle it out on the steeps of Park City but find time to bring their two families together.
Exploring each other’s worlds over the week, Steve gets Man shed envy as they tour Hoonigan HQ. We go behind the scenes at the Envy factory and get involved with Lizard Skins creating a special gift for Ken.
Last Orders have been called and Steve Peat and Ken Block are getting the round in, so sit back and wait to be served with your usual dose of chaos from the This Is Peaty crew.
