Shock news from the interwebz. 2010 World Champion Sam Hill has aggravated his shoulder injury and will miss World Cup round #4 Mont Sainte Anne and possibly Windham too.

Hill hasn’t had the best starts to a World Cup season but this is a terrible blow for the superstar from Western Australia.

Read on:

Team Monster Energy Specialized rider Sam Hill was injured this weekend while training back home in preparation for the upcoming World Cup rounds. Initial observation is that he’s re-aggravated his shoulder injury sustained at Fort William during the 2010 season, but Sam will undergo an MRI first thing this week to get a proper diagnosis. At this time, it looks certain that Sam will miss the Mont Saint Anne and possibly Windham World Cup rounds.

News of his injury comes with personal disappointment for Sam at a time when he was looking forward to turning his series around. “We place a high value on his contribution to the program, wish him well and hope to see him back on the bike soon” said team manager Sean Heimdal

    gutted for him

  2. Nozes

    Bad news indeed!
    Heal up soon,Sam!
    I’m sure you will be ready for defending that jersey on “your” track come September.

  3. Hunter

    Cheeky bastard, he’s doing what he did last year! Blowing off the World Cup to concentrate on the World Champs. Can;t say I blame him. He should be unstoppable in Champery at this rate.

  4. sws

    Not a compleatly awful thing. He needs some time to get in shape anyways. He’s clearly missing a step this year for sure. Just looks sluggish riding. Rehab, Rest, And take even a few extra weeks to train and hopefully we’ll see him flat out for the last few races on all the steep & wild tracks. Get better soon dude!

    Does SPY Optics not sponsor Sam?

  6. raddog

    bugger. I expected him to come out guns a blazin’ at Mt SA.

  7. DHIObessed

    With guns a blazing Gee, Gwin, and Minar will battle for the overall but it sure is not the same series without 50Cal. Magnum Hill.

    Hi guys,

    we are looking for a photograph in Mont Sainte Anne World Cup. If someone is interested, please let me know: info@speedsport.sk… a short text about a race will be appreciated.

    Thank you very much

  27. Quikfield

    You have to have bad luck!

    But Sam will be able to overcome the difficulties and will spread magic through which will pass on all the evidence!

    All opponents are going to eat his dust!

    Good and fast recovery ;)
