Which two names come to mind when you think of the biggest downhill mountain biking rivalries? How about the most successful World Championship winner of all time vs a World Champion with two decades worth of wins, making him the mountain biking pro with the longest career of victories. For us there’s no bigger rivalry than Steve Peat vs Nicolas Vouilloz.
Surprisingly though, Steve and Nico had never ridden together until they met on the French/Swiss border between Champery and Les Gets a few months ago. Both riders have unfinished business at these two historic venues so we thought we’d get them together to settle some scores, relive their failures and give them one more run down the tracks they couldn’t quite crack as pro’s.
For us growing up these guys were huge inspirations. It’s awesome to see the two biggest rivals of MTB still riding, having a ton of fun on their bikes and sharing some stories about the good old days. Long live these legends!
