Lourdes World Cup 2015 | Breaking News Sam Hill

Word in the pits here at Lourdes is that Sam Hill might not be racing this weekend, a shoulder injury is looking like it might keep him off the brutal course here in Lourdes. [related_articles]We haven't seen him riding today and having just spoken to Chain Reaction team manager Nigel Page he has said Sam will decide tomorrow. Fingers crossed he will be racing as the track suits his style, it's steep as hell and with minimal pedalling he could make a big statement here. Our best goes out to Sam and we are hoping to see him racing on Sunday.
