Wildomar, CA- Team Monster Energy Specialized rider Sam Hill was injured this weekend while training back home in preparation for the upcoming World Cup rounds. Initial observation is that he’s re-aggravated his shoulder injury sustained at Fort William during the 2010 season, but Sam will undergo an MRI first thing this week to get a proper diagnosis. At this time, it looks certain that Sam will miss the Mont Saint Anne and possibly Windham World Cup rounds.
News of his injury comes with personal disappointment for Sam at a time when he was looking forward to turning his series around. “We place a high value on his contribution to the program, wish him well and hope to see him back on the bike soon” said team manager Sean Heimdal
