A far cry from the intensity of the World Cup downhill scene, the CRC PayPal lads catch a few folk unawares at the fourth round of the Enduro World Series in La Thuile, Italy.
Sam Hill was the one taking the fight to defending champion and seemingly unstoppable Richie Rude. Despite a crash and a 24th place, Hill would take a stage win and keep the Yeti Cycles man honest throughout the weekend. Joe Smith would finish a solid 47th, while Pagey racks up a 2nd in Masters and Eliott Heap scratched up 6th in the U21 category.
Keep an eye out for hill at more EWSs this year!
