2013 WORLD CUP DOWNHILL CHAMPION
Going into the final round of the World Cup finals in Leogang, Austria, all eyes
were on Steve Smith (Devinci Global Racing): on a roll with his victories in
Mt. Saint Anne and Hafjell, and never off the podium this year, Steve was a
mere 17 points behind the overall leader. With 250 points at stake in the final
round, Steve Smith knew there was only one way to succeed: win.
He went on to dominate both the qualifications and finals, securing an
iconic World Cup championship title that will have a place in mountain
bike racing’s history. Riding components from SRAM, RockShox, Avid and
TRUVATIV, Steve demonstrated not only his speed and talent, but also
proved himself as a truly consistent and clear-headed racer, capable of
handling the tremendous pressure of a down to the wire season’s finale.
CONGRATULATIONS STEVE SMITH
