Video: Sam Hill Gives Kilian Bron a Taste of Aussie Dust

Mar 5, 2019
by Mavic HQ  

Sharing a ride with Sam is always an amazing experience. I had the opportunity to join him at his home for few weeks, not so far from Perth – WA. In Dusted, we just enjoyed a day sharing some laps on a dusty flow trail around the Murray Valley.

What a feeling to follow him drifting on every corners with incredible ease, as usual... It's disconcerting to see him flying down the trail but that was also a real pleasure to try to catch him up! That's simply the best way to learn to ride!

Sam is a true passionate. Not only for races, he just likes to ride mountain bikes, and share good times with his friends and family. A humble and discreet legend, already prep’d for the first rounds of the 2019 Enduro World Series.

On my side, I used to spend most of my time in the mountains, discovering new trails all around the world. Even if I'm mostly focused on my original trips and media projects, racing and spending time with the all Intense Mavic Collective team is a good way to challenge myself and see all my friends reunited in the same event.

bigquotesIt's cool to be able to ride with the people who work at Mavic and enjoy sort of the same passion each other bounds ideas of each other about product and new products and what we like and don't like. Just see their excitement to get out on a bike !

Riding with Kilian and being able to show him some of my local and home trails was an awesome experience and he had no trouble keeping up in the dusty conditions, so yeah it was pretty cool!

In theory, we have two opposite profiles but we share the exact same passion for mountain biking. That was the key of success for this little video project and I really appreciate his spirit.

That's actually a short action video before releasing a full inside story about the real Sam Hill. Because there is real human hidden behind the incredible athlete he is!

Sam showed me his own local trails and in return, he followed me on some sketchy lines. The dam below is a good example.

After a little warm up on the Dwellingup trails, the same you watched in the video, we went to the Mundaring trails for more action. A sunset photo shooting, shared with friends and other good guys.

Thanks Sam for the good times! Thanks Mavic for making it possible!

 I love that Sam just never looks hectic. Great clips.

 Not clips... Flats..

 That mid-air foot out to berm landing is the most badass moto thing I've ever seen. Reminds me of Sam's clip from Chile EWS ????????????????

 Another point for flat pedals: foot out in the air to destroy the upcoming corner.

 It is really interesting to see what different conditions impact on a riders style. This is full blown dust which is bloody hard to ride well. And, If I'm right, when it gets wet it doesn't turn grippy and boggy but ice-rink like. Either way, both conditions are at the extreme ends of grip, one being dusty and dry, the other wet n wild, so maybe it shows why Sam Hill can ride most things well.

 Nice to see the new tracks at Dwellingup featured. It's nice to see what a positive, supportive town, some funding and a co-operating government agency can do when they work together to build three awesome downhill tracks while maintaining the quality of the southern Jarrah Forest. Pity that the good will and collaboration doesn't extend north to Perth and the surrounding Darling Scarp...

 Hottest summer ever recorded in Aus, looks like those scenes in the Unreal movie, the Dirt Blizzard segment.

 really? so, pretty hot then.

 @jamesbrant: No not pretty at all.

 Been the coolest couple of summer in years in Perth. "The hottest ever recorded" occurred several thousand kays away and supported by the Bureau of Meteorology undertaking some pretty controversial "number adjustment" to underpin their hypothesis and substantiate ongoing research funding.

 @gonzoracing: without getting into a debate about climate change, this was one dusty video, yes?

 @gonzoracing: Been crazy hot in Radelaide. Certainly one of the hottest on record.

 I thought for sure Sam would at least run the Impact Pro from time to time, but I've yet to see him run anything but the full on Impact
