Peaty Wins Worlds! Evil's Steve Smith 10th, Issaquah's Luke Strobel 39th

| | ,

Finally, after a nonpareil career where the only vacancy in the trophy case was the world championship, Steve Peat outclassed a stellar field to earn his first striped jersey. The powerful Brit led a brilliant top 5 — Greg Minnaar, Mic Hannah, Fabien Barel and Sam Hill — in Canberra, Australia, to take home the gold by a razor-thin .05 of a second.

Seattle-based Evil’s Steve Smith finished 10th and the pride of Issaquah, Luke Strobel, wound up a respectable 39th.
