There’s always a buzz around CRC’s buildings during the annual CRC/Nukeproof downhill team visit, but this year was a little bit different as Sam Hill joined Matt Simmonds and Joe Smith to meet the staff and see the fresh Team CRC/Nukeproof 2013 riding kit for the first time.

This image sums up most of the day the team spent with us, with autograph hunters and Kodak moments popping up everywhere.

The centre of attention for most of the day, Sam Hill was a true gent - posing for pics, chatting bikes and penning his signature for anyone who asked.

We pride ourselves on our technical knowledge and ability, and Sam, Matt and Joe spent loads of time in the CRC workshop checking out the parts used on their 2013 Pulse bikes. Here they are with CRC's talented workshop technicians.

Of course, the guys were itching to get riding too, so we introduced them to our local trails in Rostrevor, County Down.
