The release couldn’t be more perfectly timed. The legacy of Steve Smith is stronger than ever as the next generation of Canadian downhiller’s storms to incredible success on the World Cup circuit. On Saturday alone, Finn Iles followed in Smith’s footsteps to become only the second Canadian man to win an elite World Cup, and the first to do so at Mont-Sainte-Anne since Smith in 2013. Jackson Goldstone, Gracey Hemstreet and Bodhi Kuhn were all on the junior podium, with Goldstone taking the win. Mark Wallace in ninth in elite men and seven juniors in the top-10 in all, it was a huge huge day for Canada.
