As everyone knows by now, Sam HIll suffered a shoulder injury while practicing for the Fort William World Cup round two weeks ago. Since then he has gone home to Australia to have it looked at by a specialist.
"I don’t know what is wrong, I have to find out tonight what the prognosis is. I’ve seen 3 different people and they have all told me something else. I’m off to see a proper shoulder specialist and go from there.”
According to Monster Energy / Specialized team manager Sean Heimdal, Hill is a definite scratch for this weekend in Leogang and is resting up at home in Australia. He has been told to rest his shoulder for 6 weeks, and is currently week to week on when he will return. "Hopefully sooner than later" Heimdal said.
