 some random dude: "go go go!!!" sam hill: "i am!"
  • + 15
 he was def on for the win if this didn't happen. Can't wait for champery and val di sole

 @bikounet

Because that's how Sam Hill rides, he'll push it for the entire track (even the easy bits) and that's why he comes 5th even after a crash!

Remember the 2008 Worlds, he was 8 seconds (I think) up and he slid out on what was practically the last corner!? It's how he rolls! And at the end of the day, he probably enjoys riding on the edge much more than playing it safe!

 I know, I think he's the best rider, he's my favorite rider and finishing 5th after a crash, it's amazing, like in 2008 and in Valnord...
But it's a stupid crash... neg props me if you want, but when friends told me "he crashed" I thougth it was a big crash in the rock garden or something like that... and there he just slipped... Do not say it's not a stupid crash, it is! Smile And no, I'm not saying that I can ride as fast he's riding

 thats amazing how he manages to get off the bike that fast in that situation

 He was tearing off his goggle thing and that split second threw him off! Nobody seem to have noticed that!?

 @StuHeight,, thanks ! yeah,, thats sooo true!!

 sneaky little line there sam, dont think it was faster though sorry.
  • + 1
 Correct me if im wrong but is that the new 2011 Demo proto?
  • + 1
 Ah nice find Smile The first Specialized i'd think about buying! Looks super low, my kinda bike...
  • + 0
 stuhaight that didnt make him fall of though.
  • + 1
 perhaps, tearing off ,, makes him a little mistake for rear braking .. (only hill know wut had happened tho)
  • + 3
 if you aint crashin you aint pushin yourself hard enuff!
  • + 9
 that would be scary coming in that hot
  • + 6
 yeah shit happens...
  • + 8
 real pro - that was nice, hot situation, great escape from bike & tree Razz
  • + 8
 hahahaha!! its sam hill of course he would get podium with a crash!
  • + 7
 This happened on his race run?
  • + 6
 yeah man..thats insane! Razz
  • + 6
 INSANE! master in escape , master in re run
  • + 5
 what a cheat - he entered further down the course than where he left it, should be disqualified!
  • + 5
 Be careful who you call a cheat Tommyp, Peaty did the same thing at Ft Bill last year.
  • + 4
 Its a joke Goose. Dont get patriotic... Haha
  • + 1
 Goose, that wasn't on his race run.
  • + 4
 that happend on his final race run Wink
  • + 2
 timlake - if that wasnt his race run why did he get up so quickly and hop back on the bike without checking it, getting his breath back etc?
  • + 2
 I'm not talking about Hill. I'm talking about Peaty last year at Fort William. Hense me addressing Goose.
  • + 1
 He lost over 5 seconds in the crash they would never dq someone for thatits just silly!
  • + 3
 Timlake, do you care to change your opinion now?

 Timlake is making shit aggain
  • + 1
 I must have seen another video then. The video I saw he did a similar thing but went under the tape, and didn't have the Leaders jersey on. Variiis. I do make shit, you also make shit. It is a process our body does called digestion.
  • + 1
 Tim, very funny... Wink

Variiis - He made a mistake, not shit.
  • + 1
 That's why he is the man to beat, 5th with a crash, he was definitely going for the win if he hadn't done this "amateur" mistake of pulling the tear-off to close to the corner. But i guess that's racing, anything can happen!!
  • + 4
 dang it freecaster! not showing this
  • + 0
 and I payed for it...
  • + 3
 they didnt show this on freecaster, we were waiting for ages for him 2 come into veiw but now i know why tup
  • + 3
 Maybe he crashes cos a second before he rips his googles off..
  • + 2
 But his hands are clearly back on the handlebars before he crashes. Specialized tyres = bad
  • + 3
 maybe he didnt have time to break , like he said an went in to fast
  • + 1
 im guessing you haven't even had the privilege of using awesome specialized tyres
  • + 2
 I think if he had clips he would of been thrown off the bike!
  • + 3
 Funny crash! Big Grin
