What a solid debut! Monster Energy congratulates professional enduro mountain biker and multiple MTB World Champion Sam Hill on taking third place in the Vittoria EWS-E Tweed Valley race event in Scotland on Thursday.

Hill has been racing mountain bikes since the age of 12. A recognized icon of the sport, the Australian has earned eight World Champion titles across multiple disciplines and countless high-profile victories. Adding his first podium finish in the EWS-E Pro division continues the evolution of one of the world’s most versatile racers.
The Vittoria EWS-E Tweed Valley race is the biggest celebration of international mountain biking in the United Kingdom. Accompanied by amateur races, family fun, and a full-fledged music and food festival, the officially sanctioned EWS mountain bike race brought droves of spectators to the Scottish countryside.
