Great Britain's Wharncliffe Weekender annual mountain bike festival raised £13,000 for the Weston Park Hospital's Teenage Cancer Unit according to www.thestar.co.uk. Downhiller Steve Peat, who lives near Wharncliffe Woods and does his winter training there, supported the event for the third year.

Afterward, the British star visited the hospital with a few friends to deliver the check after the event.

Next month, Peat will be awarded an honorary doctorate from Sheffield Hallam University for his mountain bike accomplishments.
