Updated with video: Sam Hill on Team CRC/Nukeproof


Unless you’ve been locked away for the past few days in a mountain biking parallel universe, you may have missed this year’s biggest transfer news: Sam Hill’s move to Team CRC/Nukeproof.

Adored by thousands around the world and renowned for his inimitable riding style, Sam Hill changed the face of gravity riding since his emergence on the race scene.

As a teaser of what's to come from Sam and the team this year, here are some pics from the five time downhill champ since joining CRC/Nukeproof:
