Lucky number 7

The Lisbon Downtown race is in its 7th year. Hard to believe. As most of you know the race takes place within the city streets of Lisbon as racers make there way from the top of the city down to the lowest point. With a stack of riders Peat managed to take the win for the 7th year in a row. As many people have said before, a World Championship title could be his if Lisbon simply hosted the race. Below are Kathy Sesslers words and photos.

Syndicate’s Steve Peat continues his reign of Lisbon, Minnaar finishes hot behind him in second, Filip Polc takes 3rd for the second year in a row. Minnaar jokes, “The race was good today. I think Steve was lucky. I had to fake a mistake to let the old boy win! Things went pretty good. I felt a bit of pressure from the old man. I made a little mistake on top and a costly mistake at the bottom, but that’s racing and that’s how it goes. I’m happy for Steve today, winning 7 times in a row!”
