Race action finally begins for Team CRC/Nukeproof in #OnTheHunt episode two as they head to Fort William, Scotland, to start their World Cup campaign and emotions are running high for Team Manager Nigel Page as he nervously watches on as Matt Simmonds, Joe Smith and Sam Hill cross the line.

Next up is Val di Sole, Italy, where we follow the guys on a cross-country ride before they take on the World Cup course that looks like it was built for Sam Hill -- dry, dusty, super-steep and technical! Could Sam conquer this course to post a podium place?

 Sam is having some bad luck but he's looking good and fast, I reckon he'll be back at that top spot for sure..

 all these years i grew up thinking sam hill was dull and boring , when really i think this move to team crc has really brought out his charector etc hes funny as hell! and i think its one of the best teams out there cant see gwin having as much fun these days as those boys on the crc team are..
  • + 2
 hes always been funny in most of his vids, hes just shy
  • + 1
 Nah, I think it isn't bad luck. The team has been having mechanical problems since the start. I think they need a better mechanic.

 Such a good video. Great feel. Comes across like a bunch of buddys riding together, managed by their crazy uncle.
  • + 1
 same feeling here!!

 This team is impressive. They look like a family, hugging, saying "Sorry, mate." mr. Page yelling at the finish "GO YOU CAN DO IT!" Makes we want to buy something from Nukeproof!

  • + 2
 I agree. Great job fellas!

 I just want him to win again Frown Shame about the bit of bad luck hes having.

If it's driving me crazy I can't imagine what he's like.

 Didn't know Sam had a chain malfunction. Pretty damn impressive he got 6th knowing that. I'm sure he would've placed higher had his chain not get stuck.
  • + 7
 He was Second coming into the last split, and there's no way he would have lost time on the last motorway section knowing the way Sam both jumps and keeps momentum. I think it's safe to say he would've been 2nd without that failure.

 I love DH also for this reason...the problem !It adds so much suspence...you may think this oen or this one could win if......remember Gwin last year in Leogang !

 Hard to say its bad luck. Maybe mistake from mecanic or chain too light and broke or the chain hiting a rock... its like a flat, normal dh casing are hard to flat but racers go ligher and then the flat comes. That Gwin feilure brake were a bad luck? Thats amazing in downhill how things can change in a cents of a second... like raining hard in the middle of the heat the last riders to race had bad luck? Thats dh racing an amazing unique sport

 He could have won the race, I think. But the mechanic should be blamed for not doing his job well.

 to have a deemax crack in two places, and bend your bars with a direct mount stem, reminds again how pinned these dudes are holy shit. one miss and boom!
  • + 9
 c'mon Sam ! just one win , then everyone else will be riding scared
  • + 6
 Going through that tunnel in the pitch dark must have been crazy. And what Simmonds did to that Deemax rim at Fort William was nuts.
  • + 6

 Hill seems so at home on this team. Here's to seeing him on the top step soon.

 Sam could have been the fastest in Fort William if his bike's gears didn't malfunction. It went from the hardest to the easiest gear in the the last split! He lost 4 to 5 seconds for that one!
