    Fixed that for you ;)

    I will say his improving results will bring him confidence. He commented he isn't in full mental form this season so it might have been that more than phisical fitness that meant lower results.

    Congrats to Sam. He seems happy and we know what a new child did to Peaty's form ;)

    Hehe, a bit confusing but - I think Bizutch was writing a thought bubble caption for Sam in the picture.

    Sam is fine and placed 5th at Worlds last weekend. This was just a screen cap of him in the pits with his boy during some down time.

    Indeed.

    Yeah - it really is a great pic and a side of Sam we don't really see that much.

    ...BTW - if you watch the vid link and FF to the 1:07 mark - as vitalMTB pointed out - Sam does a MACH 2 nose-wheelie into a berm and just shakes it off like "Whatever". LoL. Pretty insane.

    "I had a pretty decent crash this morning".
    Completely without brakes in front of his bike right over the berm.
    Insane.

    I remember in 2006, Sam Hill used to eat babies before a race. And punch trees. The trees fell over.

    Great photo. If his real-life personality matches how he comes through in all the videos he'll be a fantastic dad.

    Interested to see Sam wearing a Leatt. Is this new (post dad-hood insurance) or am I just not very observant?

    I think Waddells crash had some influence on him as well. I remember them being pretty good mates.

    Actually Caffeine and breast feeding can have bad results, irritable angry baby which means angry mother/parents. Speaking from experience here.

    You are right about RM becoming old and girly. But I have to disagree regarding the coolest picture, SuspectDevice has already posted it:

    any snap of Charre is pretty damn awesome: the intensity in that chick's eyes during her race run are just 0.o
