“Sam Hill & CRC-Mavic dominate EWS Rd 1”
What a race! The Enduro World Series in Lo Barnechea, Chile was simply incredible. Huge stages, anti grip dust and an incredible result for Sam Hill, CRC- Mavic & Nukeproof to kick off the title defence.
“The tracks here in the High Andes were wild to stay the least – ridiculously high speed, rough, loose and super long with a couple of stages with huge amounts of cardio effort needed from pedal power also. Stage two was the longest stage in EWS history and stage one must have been the fastest ever downhill stage in mountain biking history. With three stages on Saturday and three on Sunday, Sam convincingly won the race in a time of 55:02.18. 36 seconds ahead of GT’s charging Martin Maes and 1:25 ahead of Ibis Cycles’ Robin Wallner.
The tracks had some of the fastest high speed sections we have ever seen in a MTB race and Sam’s riding was a clinic in what is possible on a mountain bike, with high speed drifts and crazy commitment to the rough loose sections. Enjoy some of the video clips of Sam’s riding. He is a once in a generation two wheeled maniac!”
