A racer flies down the Steve Smith Drop, recently renamed in honour of Canadian downhill legend Steve “Chainsaw” Smith (1989-2016). 

It was a perfect stunner of a summer weekend at Mont-Sainte-Anne for the 14th edition of Vélirium, the resort’s premier summer sporting event, which combines the UCI downhill and cross-country mountain biking world cup with amateur and family-friendly races and events.
