Apr 8, 2020
by Chain Reaction Cycles  

What does a typical day look like for triple Enduro World Series Champion Sam Hill? A bit like this...


Join Sam at his local gym, trails and MX track. We can't get enough of the Team Chain Reaction Cycles legend.

 I think he deserves all he has, a good life, sponsor and maybe economic peace not because he puts photos on instagram or makes videos but because he is a rider who has made the results without ever showing off and always being himself. Sam Hill may not be the best to sell his image but that's why I respect him very much!

 Well said! Dudes rolling in a basic van, no $100k sprinter, modest bike setup, no fancy gear, loves it for what it is and nothing else. He has some sick moves on the bike but you never see him busting out big manuals and tricks for the sake of it....

 Also it is great because he rides a bike (model) which retails at half the price others are selling for.

 i guess you guys dont remember samapaloozas and golden jackets, he hasnt always been this quiet suburban daddy, dude is crazy

 @nikifor88: Crazy ? define crazy.everybody s crazy. Samapaloozas parties ? What didnt you party when you were in your 20 s ? He was looking up to Shaun Palmer and Chris Kovarik and Rennie, what s wrong with that ? However he never had a douche attitude like that freestyle douche with sensus grips whats his name again ? the one that rides for YT , anyhow see ? that douche looked up to Evil Knievel and ended up as recognised as a douche.
Sam s always been down to earth in front of the audience and he didnt care because he truly just loved doing what he does for the pure thing of it.

 @RadBartTaylor: Wow, you really changed after Helltrack. Kind of a sneak diss to Cru's 360 across the finish line though.

 I like these videos more because I know how much he hates making them, being followed around by a camera and stuff. Those old videos he did when he was pretty much saying all the questions were bollocks and stuff. Hilarious.

 Sam Hill. Absolute legend. Still remember hearing his first World Champs win reported on local radio in Western Australia. Stoked then and stoked he is still winning now.

 From a pedalling flat track is not his strong point to winning pedalling oriented EWS.

 @chyu: And don't forget Cairns on his enduro bike.

 It's so refreshing to see someone at his level being sooooooo humble and relaxed.

 Well what a surprise, who'd have thought that he'd run SPD's on his MX bike.

 I know everyone hates pinkbike polls at the moment, but to change that I suggest a poll called something like ‘at what point does slow-mo spoil a video?’ or ‘how much slow-mo can you handle before you just want to see Sam Hill shredding in real time’.

Nice vid, thanks for posting, it reminded me to go watch some edits of Sam Hill at full clanker.

 Slo-mo has its place but not in a Sam Hill video. We want to see Sam at full throttle! He is such a raw talent and incredibly down to earth.

 Loves it! Amazing to see how much more comfortable he is in front of a camera now. 10 years ago it was definitely a different story!

 One quiet dude who lets his riding do the talking..refreshing..LEGEND!! Smile

 I somehow have wound up following Sam's wife on insta -https://instagram.com/mrssamhill__?igshid=10bz4h7kjopa7

She seems like a legend and really gives you a hilarious view into the life of a world champ!

 Sanders?

You’re probably right

 Without a doubt, he is a true legend. He was amazing as a DHer and equally amazing as an Enduroer. But - you know what I came for - more footy of his wife! I mean, c'mon, am I the only one that was hear for that?

 Sam has been one of my favorite riders, ever since the NORBA days and Clay Porters great interviews in Synopsis and more. Super humble dude, with insane talent on the bike. For sure lets his riding speak for him. What an all time bad ass!

 Give him few more years. He will become George Clooney.

 Cool to see a chilled out video posted on here. Such an epic rider and represents the Australian Laid Back attitude really well, even when competing under the pressures of an international rider away from the family.

 Dude is so calm. I wonder if he ever raises his voice
  • 2 0
 He does when he’s angry. Remember the scenario in Whistler 2 years ago, when one stupid photographer was standing between the tapes, on Sam’s line so Sam yelled to him “off the track man!”. It was recorded and posted on here.

 @Eden4: Photographer probably was out of the way for every other rider. And then there's the Sam Hill line lol

 The champ deserves the good life he lives. I’m happy for him!

 One of a kind! What a legend.

 Yup, he still looks like Steve-O.

 He even has holes in his riding shirt, nothing fancy, down to earth, probably can teach the local goats some moves :-)

 I like this guy but was missing some future plans. What are his goals? Or what is he planning to do when racing mtbs doesnt work out anymore....

 Good video that's good for the soul - music, vibe, everything.

I think his daughter said @ 7:53 "why do you run these stupid things on your MTB"? Smile

Peace.

 Camelbak Chase. Really popular with endurance XC racers and catching on with the Enduro crowd.

 @GO-RIDEcom: Nop. Probably Mavic.
  • 1 0
 @Btrails: Nope. Definitely Camelbak. You can tell by the straps, the hose, the blue tag on the zip and if you freeze at around 3.25 you can make out Camelbak written on it.
