Congrats Stevie.
'I knew the top guys were all in the rain I knew it wasn't going to chop up and kept with the dry tires. The top was a bit mucky and just went into ruts earlier and just let it slide. I knew if I could just catch ruts I wouldn't crash.'

     'Steve Smith (Devinci Global Racing) won the downhill World Cup at Mont-Sainte-Anne in Quebec, Canada, on Sunday afternoon, the second World Cup win of his career. Smith crossed the line in 3:58.485, upsetting the man who was in the hot seat, Gee Atherton (GT Factory Racing) by 0.904 seconds. Sam Hill (Chain Reaction Cycles.com/Nukeproof) was third at 2.118 seconds.
Atherton had gotten his run in in earlier due to having crashed during the qualifying run and being further up the start list. Rain began to fall and made the course more slippery for the later riders...
"I was scared," said Smith to Redbull.tv after his run. "I knew Gee was going early because of his crash, but he had a good course. I tried to ride it without expectations and ride it like I did in practice. It was so slippery. It felt great to win on home soil."

"I know we still have two more World Cups, and I like the next two tracks, so I'm looking forward them," said Smith.'
