What a victory! Steve Smith has snatched the World Cup overall victory away from Gee Atherton who has been leading all season long. His triumphant win in Leogang rounded out a solid back end to the season (I’ll not mention worlds) and his long dreamed of World Cup Overall win.
Harking back to his beginnings in Cassidy, Steve has dreamt of success for a very long time. This section from ‘The Collectives’ Seasons film from 2007 shows the desire of a 17 year old Stevie to match the performances of his Idols, Sam Hill and Steve Peat. Shuttled up the hill by his amazing Mom, Steve talks about what drives him and where he wants to be… in 2013!
Well done Steve.
