Stirling University maths graduate Dr Steve Peters taught for 8 years before becoming a doctor and psychiatrist working with men with severe psychiatric disorders. Now he's best known as the GB cycling team 'mind mechanic' behind the success of Olympians like Victoria Pendleton and Sir Chris Hoy. In this fascinating programme, he sits in the Stark chair and talks to Edi about what's made him and his elite athletes turn their lives around. There is, he says, a chimp in all of us who has to be managed.
