Monster Energy’s Sam Hill (AUS) wins second place at the Enduro World Series Round 6 in Whistler, Canada after winning round 4 and 5.
The Australian battled back from an early time deficit to slide into the silver position and solidify his lead in the overall series ranking with only two stops left on the series calendar.
The usually brutal tracks were toned down this week with only 1100m of climbing over five stages and a couple of lift assists. Riders left the start ramp and made the 450m vertical climb up Blackcomb Mountain twice to hit the famed Micro Climate and Crazy train trails for their first two stages of the day. From there it was a spin around Alta lake to take them to the Creekside Gondola that would take riders up to stages three and four in the new Creekside Zone and the hand built Delayed Fuse track followed by a quick pedal up to Heavy Flow and Tunnel Vision. From there it was a quick spin back to the gondola and the long ride to the 2182m Whistler Peak for the 21- minute marathon to the bottom of stage five.
