 Yep. Unfortunately, even if he continues this amazing run for the rest of the season, he won't even be on the radar...

 The truth hurts and jo-m merely preached it.

Granted, he'll still make more dents in the mainstream media in Canada - especially if he were to win Worlds - than Gwin has in the US media his career combined.

I'd prefer it stay that way. Once the mainstream gets ahold of this sport, there would be massive amounts of money on the table and suddenly we'd be dealing with PEDs and other methods of cheating. And you know they'll re-introduce skinsuits. Is THAT what we want??? Wink

 Ouch! Allow me to clarify, awarding Canadian Athlete of the Year is a highly political, usually BS process.

The Crusty's that vote on this award would view DH as too fringe and frivolous. As I said, even if Steve wins every race from here on in, he would barely get consideration. The Tennis player that got his ass handed to him by Nadal in the Rogers Cup final will win, coz he's top 10 now! Another win for Milos! (Ya Seinfeld fans, that's his name).

This is not a slight on Steve at all. He is the reason I started watching DH racing. He is amazing. Unfortunately it is unlikely that he will get national recognition outside of his own sport. It's BS, but the reality.

 I took it as he's too fast to even be on the radar, he just blows through it

 Same here in the UK. No disrespect to the Smith but Steve Peat winning and being generally a top sportsman, Danny Hart's Worlds win and Gee sticking to the top at so many events is criminally neglected by the media. Only 700c wheels get any attention but even then that's after the never-ending off-season football reports. The campaign starts here!

 Im a disaffected englishman and I've decided I want to move to Canada, big mountains, sparsely populated and mostly speak english - apart from the french regions. Please can someone sponsor me or something? I went on the 'emigrate to canada' website and filled out the suitability form but failed. You don't have to sponsor me just put me and my girlfriend up on your sofa until I can get a low paid job. I like neil young although Im more of a gene clark fan. I prefer anvil to metallica.

 Wow Stevie is on fire!!!! Super fast!!! stoked for Sik Mik, he is fast too.

 Smith's been quietly-but-steadily moving up the rankings the last couple of seasons and is in a very good position to steal the WC overall from Gee with two races left. One of the venues happens to be where he won last year, so don't proclaim Gee the champ just yet.
