Remembering Stevie Smith (AKA Chainsaw)
Remembering Stevie Smith. Chainsaw needs no introduction, he was one of the nicest guys in downhill and was one of Canada’s greatest riders to date. The weekend just gone (9-10th May) was the fourth anniversary of the sad passing of this absolute legend.
Red bull has put together this video of his great 2013 Mont-Saint-Anne run and it was great to reminisce. Hope you enjoy
Remembering Stevie Smith Video Tribute
This summer, we remember one of UCI’s most iconic races, Mont-Sainte-Anne 2013. 🇨🇦 In particular, we remember Steve Smith’s legendary run! Dominating a 2013 season, Stevie made history with his legendary MSA run to secure vital points for the overall UCI Downhill Mountain Bike World Cup win. Those points ultimately became extremely valuable during an upcoming battle in Leogang with Gee Atherton that year. Smith still stands as the last Canadian to win a World Cup at home.
Stevie Smith AKA Chainsaw will always be greatly missed both on the Downhill World Cup circuit, as a mountain biker and an all-around great guy. He gave so much to the sport and it is such a huge loss. We will be remembering Stevie Smith for many years to come.
