Devinci Global Racing entered the 2013 gravity arena with its stacked lineup of Steve Smith, Nick Beer, Mark Wallace and Gianluca Vernassa. With less than a week before the first UCI World Cup of the season we wanted to share some of the preseason preparation and testing the team did while in Canada.

With the majority of the team and staff in Vancouver preparing for the season, Steve invited everyone over to his place on Vancouver Island and hit the trails on Mt. Prevost. The guys spent a week breaking in new bikes and enjoying some of Vancouver Island’s finest.

Here is the story of their visit and stoke for the upcoming season. Watch for the team this weekend in Fort William, Scotland and the following weekend in Val Di Sole, Italy.

 I have a feeling this is going to be one of the most competitive racing seasons downhill has ever seen, but in the end we all know Stevie is going own every race, but Gwinn is going to give him a run for his money.

 I dont know if anyone calls a sporting event with more pure passion and enthusiasm and unbridled and unashamed excitement than Warner!! Say what you will about him, but I have met him three times and each has been great. Crazy, ludicrous, over the top - sure... But it is not fake I don't think. He loves it and I love him calling it!!! Keep it up Warner.... And go Stevie!!
