NORTH VANCOUVER—Eighteen year old Canadian young gun Steve Smith has defeated a star-studded field to
win the US Open of Mountain Biking at Diablo Freeride Park in New Jersey.
“This is a huge result for Steve.  I am really excited for him heading into the rest of the season. He has proved that
he can ride with the best in the World.” said Gabe Fox, marketing manager at Cove Bikes.
