The 2012 Downhill MTB World Cup season wrapped up this weekend in Hafjell, Norway and Monster Energy Specialized’s Sam Hill raced to 7th place under blue skies, on a track that had him smiling all week.
The track was really varied which is great for all riders, with huge jumps out of the start gate to super technical steep rock gardens and high speed 70kmh sections out on the ski pistes!
Sam Blenkinsop throws a banana at the Sram pits, Cam Cole just misses out on another podium and Loic Bruni takes the junior title.
