Sam Hill took third place at the Australian National Championships in Stromlo, Canberra, over the weekend, maintaining a successful start to the 2013 season in which he’s finished every race on the podium.

A wind-swept, rain-soaked course caused problems for many riders and resulted in a number of crashes and hospital trips! Sam Hill said: “The track gets grippy with rain – normally with wet weather you can slip around and it makes it more of a challenge, it's a super tough track here. I made a few little mistakes near the bottom, and I lost a bit of speed, but I'm happy with it.”
