LEOGANG, AUSTRIA—Devinci Global Racing’s Stevie Smith continues his late-season dominance, snatching bronze on his custom Carbon Wilson with a series of podium crushing times at the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships.

Leogang is home to one of Europe’s top bike parks and features a lightning-fast, jump-filled course. Wavering weather conditions wreaked havoc as they moved from desert dry to monsoon conditions through the week. Saturday’s rain filled practice saw Smith slide into 2nd on a sketchy track after pinning it in the timed runs against the elite pack. Nick Beer finished the day in 6th.

Sunday’s main event brought fans out en masse to see the crowning of a new World Champion. The first podium worthy time was set by the French rider Florent Payet, who remained in the lead until the detonation of the final ten riders.

Smith dropped in from the 10th position and was down by 1.5 at the first split. Seeing the podium through the forest he hit the throttle through the roots, sending it into the hot seat by over half a second—where he sat until the third from last rider arrived. After the fog lifted and final times were registered, Smith would settle for third behind two previous World Champs—Greg Minnaar in first and Gee Atherton in second.

“It’s great to see Steve finish on the podium on the new bike,” said DGR Team Manager, Gabe Fox. “He’s had a hell of a season and the results have solidified nicely with his consecutive wins at Crankworx and now this finish. I’m looking forward to the final World Cup.”

DGR closes out the 2012 World Cup season in Hafjell Norway this weekend.
