Bad news from Leogang as it turns out Sam Hill will not be competing in this weekend's race.

With a sloppy, techy track and rain forecast all weekend it looked like it could be a race that Hill could do well in but a fall in practice yesterday has ruined his chances. Hill said on Instagram: "Was having a good time yesterday in practice until I hit one of the ice slick man made rock gardens and went down. I'm pretty banged up and unfortunately not going to race this weekend."

Thankfully there's a month's break before Lenzerheide for Sam to recover and get back up to speed and he will be relishing Mont Sainte Anne in August - a track he won on in 2014.
