"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."

Smith nailed it in WC #4 | 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 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."

World champion Greg Minnaar (Santa Cruz Syndicate) was fourth with Aaron Gwin (Specialized) in fifth. Atherton continues to lead the World Cup, but Smith did close the gap somewhat with his victory today.

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