The Euro Loop with Sam Pilgrim - Video

Jul 13, 2017
by Mark Roblin  

bigquotesI traveled for 3 weeks with my bike to discover iconic places, remote trails and rad riding spots across Europe. Escaping from the rainy United Kingdom with the ferry to France, from Paris to Finale Ligura to Milan up to Lake Como, crossing Switzerland into the Olympic Park in Munich and then heading back to France via Belgium.Sam Pilgrim

 That really made me think of the, "shut up and ride your bike" phrase, he takes every day scenery, and makes it awesome.

 Nice Sam to see that your grommet enthusiasm has not diminished. I know that all the jumps and endos are awesome but locking up the back brakes and leaving skids marks everywhere never ever gets old.

 @sampilgrim: The fact that Sam takes the time to reply to random posts from fans makes him that much more of a professional. What a Dude! You are the man Sam!

 Sam easily has one of the coolest and most diverse skill sets, a little macaskill that can still throw sick whips like Vink and hit rampage lines like Zink!
