Steve Smith for Prime Minister

A massive Steve Smith and Canadian heritage moment happened this past weekend, when the Nanaimo speed demon took the World Cup Downhill title away from Gee Atherton in an amazing display of mountain biking. Watch the video above to see his winning run. The commentary alone is worth a watch.

Check out this Steve Smith editorial written by Coast Mountain Culture Editor and fellow Island boy Mike Berard, who also writes for Red Bull.

“Humble, handsome and hardly getting started, we stand together with Smith as proud Canadians as he sets his sights on the sport’s highest achievement: World Cup overall champion. Go get ‘em, Stevie. We’re behind you.

Steve Smith for Prime Minister.” – Mike Berard
