Not sure any words can express seeing CRC Nukeproof rider Sam Hill win in Valberg, France at the last round of the Enduro World Series. Sam held off stiff competition from Mountain bike royalty and local Nico Voullioz to win on his custom painted Mega 275.

It’s an amazing achievement for Sam, the team and Nukeproof. Considering the recent change of focus from Downhill. It was a surprise to many, but not Sam, he had come to race to win. With 4 EWS races under his belt (all in the top 10 and 2 on the podium).

It was the first win for Nukeproof at a global Enduro event, with Sam’s Mega 275 Frame decked in the latest Nukeproof components (Warhead Carbon bars, Signature Horizon Pedals and grips and Vector AM saddle).

Despite the gruelling length and physicality of the race, Sam was flat out attacking the course
