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.

Daily Roundup: New Mojo, Bike stimulus funding, Jill Kintner on Mont Ste. Anne and more

Ibis has announced a 6-inch version of its killer Mojo carbon fiber frame. The geometry is slacker but I can’t imagine a ton of difference between this and the 5.5-inch Mojo, other than weighing half a pound more. Both still spec’d with air shocks. So where’s the weight diff? I’ll be intrigued to see one up close but for now I’m sticking with my Pivot Firebird (with the DW-Link)…

Biking Bis has the rundown on state non-highway stimulus spending.

Mountain Bike Action has results from Mont Ste. Anne, but Jill Kintner’s blog is a better read. She’s ‘bummin’ about 4th place but hey, one of those days and besides, a whole lotta riders out there would trade for 4th in a World Cup event!

Issaquah mountain biking star Luke Strobel shows off his bike. Hope to run into him on the local trails some time…

Schweitzer expands its downhill options.
