Every year the UCI World Cup DH circuit sets the stage for everything from broken dreams to popped corks—all in pursuit of the elusive win. Spanning South Africa to Norway, and beyond, the 2012 season was all that… and more.

Devinci Global Racing stepped up as one of the premier downhill World Cup teams in 2012 finishing 4th overall in team standings and taking the top spot on two occasions in Windham and Hafjell. Additional highlights included Steve Smith's triple-crown win in Whistler, a World Championship medal, and completely dominating the field at the World Cup Finals in Hafjell—with the entire team on the podium.


It was an unforgettable season for DGR and, as they say, you only really remember the last race. We're just looking forward to remembering it all winter....


Devinci Global Racing is proudly supported by: Cycles Devinci, SRAM, RockShox, Avid, Truvativ, Easton Wheels, Schwalbe, E-Thirteen, ODI, Selle Italia, Fox Head Clothing, and Mypakage.

 Every time this song gets used a baby seal gets clubbed. Enough is enough already. How many more have to pay the price.

 yes this song has been used a lot but I think this video suited it so well I don't even care

 Never heard it before, I guess living under a rock has its perks!

 Never gets old with riding like that accompanying it!

 seriously, how many times this year? 10+? new rule, if it gets used to a major video (strength in numbers) you can use it for the rest of the year!

 I couldn't agree more. Every time I hear it, I can just see Messere. Nobody else, it just kills it, get some creativity!
  • + 4
 Yes it is horrifically over used, but as a song alone it is incredible!
  • + 3
 A lot of edits have been made with this song but this is definitely in the top.
  • + 5
 I only listen to a song once. If I ever hear it again I bitch about it on a public forum. Music should never be used or heard more than once.

They should use a song that no one has ever heard before like "Pumped up kicks".

 haha, right on helibike. I have the song in my iPhone and listen to it pretty much daily. You can add whatever visuals you want and I'm still going to enjoy one of my favourite songs. All you whiners probably cry when you fall off your bike too.

 haha, at first this song was the shit and was amazing now its a burden on any video..

 I love Devinci Wilsons! I want to buy one to ride it!

I had to stop watching the video half way through because there were too many lingering facial shots of blokes and I don't want everyone in the office thinking I'm gay.

Please videographers, I'm not gay, I'm not into looking at slow motions shots of blokes' faces and/or eyes for extended periods. I like watching people getting loose, but please stop putting so many facial slow mos in videos!

More ripping on bikes, less close ups of blokes' eyes!

 ^ buying a mountain bike to ride it? cmon now, dont be ridiculous.

 Steve Smith is the Heart and Soul of that team, i couldnt be more happy as to how the team and himself did this year. Outstanding performance sir, KEEP ON PUSHING!
  • + 11
 Still stoked that he finally won a world cup!

 About 3:11 and on...

Wow. I just remembered Steve Smith's older video talking about how his mother would shuttle him to his local DH trail every day and how he would always get to the bottom faster and faster before his mother could even arrive. Then the mother talked about his son's passion in the sport and said she is happy to shuttle him everyday because everytime she does, she knows he is getting closer to his dream on standing on the podium.

Seeing that moment @ 3:11 and seeing him so happy, that was years and years of dreaming and hard work, actually his whole life. All those shuttles the mother took him on, driving up and done unselfishly for him so he could realize his goal. And he finally got there. That moment when all your life you've worked tirelessly on that one thing and you finally succeed. That's all I see @ 3:11. Simply amazing.

 Steve Smith is the epitome of a professional. He is so nice, and so humble. The shot of him and the smile he lit up with after his win in Hafjel is priceless! So stoked for him! Can't until next year! Oh yeah, and thanks for giving my Wilson your blessing at Port Angeles Stevie! I won't forget it!

 Such a nice video.
Not a fan of slow-mo, but when used in the right places it is very effective.
Stevie Smith, always looks like he puts enjoyment over the result (the way it should be).

 maybe devinci would have had more podiums if they weren't riding in slow motion all the time....super happy Stevie got his first win this year. Can't wait for next year.

 Man that shot at 1:05 makes it seem like Stevie is flying. Reminds me of Elliot from E.T., except grown up and without an alien.
