”Sorry everyone. Looks like I forgot to say thanks to Chain Reaction Cycles and Nukeproof for the contract extension in my last post. Bring in the next 3 years with the best bike and team.”
Fair play Sam!
Three-time Enduro World Series champion Sam Hill appears to be hinting at some changes with his long-time sponsor Team Chain Reaction Cycles / Nukeproof. Sam has been with CRC Nukeproof since the 2013 season, winning three overall EWS championships and standing on 15 individual EWS podiums in his time there.
The man himself posted this on Instagram earlier.
While this is the ususal format for a rider leaving a brand, I suppose technically
this isn't announcing his departure, so team fans will have to cross their fingers and hope his next post says "...which is why I'm excited to have signed for another 8 years with Nukeproof CRC!"
We reached out to Nukeproof for more information but all they would say is that "The man's a wildcat" and that some more news would be coming soon.
Whether he's got a big new deal in the works, he's dialling back the racing, he's fully retiring, or we've been royally trolled, we'll update this as we get more information.
