Watch the Winning Runs - Lenzerheide DH World Champs 2018
He sure did, check out his instagram post where he used my photo from the 2009 World Champs in Canberra I had sent to him earlier that day encouraging him to come back :)

Qualifying Photo Gallery- LoĊĦinj DH World Cup 2018
@Cashman39: That is quite odd actually as all bikes are set up moto as standard in Australia, so front brake right hand. Had a look at some older photos and he seems to have been running that way for quite some time and i have just never noticed.

Talking About Tire Pressure - Pinkbike Poll
Yes rider weight is the mitigating factor in all of this so without reference its a waste of time. Now for a more important question with digital tyre gauges, how do you use on on a presta valve without actually losing some air and effecting the pressure. I have never seen one that does not let air escape when putting it on. Please though school me if I am not using it properly :)

Pivot Releases New Mach 4 Carbon and LES 27.5 Models
Hey TRG from the look of the Pivot website specs as below you can set the Les up single speed :) Still has internal cabling and Pressfit BB, I have two Pivots and have never had any issues but im in a very dry Perth WA (Sam Hill Country) so not much water gets in our bikes. New Swinger II dropouts with race-light hardware optimized for the lightest, stiffest XC race set up while allowing for an easy switch to access the Swinger dropouts full adjustability between singlespeed or geared set ups

Sam Hill: My Way - Video
For those of you who want to see Sam on the big rig dont despair. Had a chat with the man a couple of weeks ago at a local XCM race in Perth and he did in fact say he will race a couple of DH rounds this year and try to get points to qualify for the world champs in Cairns. Did not discuss which ones but he was pretty keen to get a place on the Aussie team this year after missing out last year for the first time in many many years. Im hoping he tears the EWS apart and makes the Champs for a truly awesome season. Go Sam!!!

Sam Hill's Nukeproof Mega - EWS Round 4, La Thuile, Italy
@slowrider73: Yep thats the facts. Sam gets to our races semi regularly, flats always, rides a grade and most times finishes top 10 and we have some very fit riders. He is very fit indeed and is a very modest dude considering his huge reputation in our sport. Hope he gets a win soon. Perth mountain bike club presso ????

Swiss Made: Lenzerheide DH World Cup 2016 - Track Walk
We had Sam at our local state series XCO race on Sunday gone in Perth. He came 7th in A grade on a HT with flat pedals (As usual) against some pretty fit guys indeed. Sam is a great guy who is extremely modest considering how successful, innovative and incredible he has been on his bikes over the years. He goes about his work with little desire for attention and lets his riding do the talking. Whether he wins again or not he is already down in history as one of the all time greatest MTB riders I am sure you will all agree. I freely admit to getting a little star struck excited when ever he comes to our local XCO races :). Great luck on the weekend Sam and all the best to you and the family. Pin it....aye
