Sam Hill finally usurps his team mate Troy Brosnan and takes the win at final round of the Australian National series at Awaba, New South Wales.

Brosnan, who wrapped up the series overall title, had been looking unbeatable winning three races form three and also went fastest in qualifying. But just two weeks before the first World Cup race at Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, Sam Hill put it all together and beat his TLD/Monster/Specialized teammate.

Good to see Mitch Delfs up on the box in 3rd.

Tracey Hannah didn’t race, preferring instead to focus on preparation for World Cup round one.

The mistake that possibly cost Troy Brosnan four wins out of four races.

    that guy on the right obviously doesn’t know the ‘one arm in the air podium pose’, must be pretty unpopular now

  6. Turpy

    Good to see Sam back on top in such a stacked field. With hitting form so close to the start of the season should be an ace WC.

    Connor Fearon is smashing it!

    The question is do I pick Hill for the fantasy league or Brosnan…

  9. Vesa

    Why are the race run times so much faster than the qualifications? Did the track conditions change somehow?
