King of the Hill
“Old age and treachery always overcomes youth and skill.”
For the entire 2017 EWS season, five-time UCI Downhill Mountain Bike World Champion Sam Hill has been going toe to toe with first-year Elite-class EWS racer Adrien Dailly. Entering the final round of the Enduro World Series at Finale Ligure, Hill held a slight lead — and his 3rd place finish sealed the deal. Sam Hill now adds the 2017 EWS world title to his collection of rainbow jerseys. Hill, who recently represented Australia at the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships, rode a Nukeproof equipped with a SRAM X01 Eagle™ drivetrain, SRAM CODE RSC brakes, RockShox LYRIK fork, Super Deluxe RCT shock and a Reverb 1x seatpost.
