Mountain bike racing is finally back – and so is our documentary series! Monster Energy is proud to announce the latest episode of ‘Between the Races’ featuring professional enduro mountain biker and multiple MTB World Champion Sam Hill. Live now across Monster Energy’s social media channels, the six-minute video follows the 35-year-old mountain bike icon from Perth, Australia, during training. Hill is headed into the 2021 enduro MTB racing season as the defending Enduro World Series (EWS) Champion.
“The best thing about mountain biking is just the freedom of it. No matter what’s going on in life… you’re stressed out or having a hard time. Anything. You can just go out into the bush and ride. And all that stress and whatever is going on seems to disappear, and all you worry about is riding and having fun,” said Hill in the documentary, adding: “It’s a good way to clean your mind, I think.”
The MTB athlete with the humble attitude has built one of the biggest legacies – and across two disciplines – in the sport. In downhill MTB racing, Hill has won two World Cup Series titles (2007/2009), and five World Championships. and now three consecutive Enduro World Series overall titles. His dominance continued after making the switch to enduro racing, where the Australian has been crowned the back-to-back Enduro World Series overall champion in 2017, 2018, and 2019.
