Team CRC/Nukeproof’s latest signing, Sam Hill, got the 2013 season off to a fine start over the weekend winning the first round of the Australian National Downhill MTB Series in Mount Buller, Victoria.

Sam posted the fastest time in seeding before riding to victory in the finals in what he said was his worst run of the weekend! “It was a pretty tough track today. It was really loose and dusty and there were a couple of big holes and not a lot of room for mistakes. With the first race of the year, I’m feeling a bit of pressure and it’s good to win,” Hill said.
