    So what happened to the annual "Sam Hill is the Anti-christ for not trying at Sea Otter" post? I was expecting to see a 20 page post by now.

    Did all of you finally realize that it just doesn't matter, or was his qualifying effort enough to satisfy?

    Didn't they name the hill they have the DH course on SAM? I think the acronym stands for "Short And Mediocre"

    I heard mark weir talking smack to him after the race. Apparently Jurgen and Hill are going to come together to totally dominate Weir at D.ville this year

    I heard this as well, word is they will be doing it on a specially designed dw linked tandem custom designed by Ned Overend and Mike King. They are going to decide who gets to be captain and who gets to be stoker in what will be quite possibly the most epic game of foot down the world has ever seen.

    Now this is the high quality thread that I was expecting. Better late than never.

    Now all we need is about 20 more rumors, 17 more post that refer to weight, and a couple of lame Chuck Norris comments.

    I heard Sylvester Stallone was training Sam and Sabrina to be the first co-ed DH Tandem WC champs on an ultralight DW engineered secret IBIS prototype Beryllium tandem so Sam had to duck out and fabricate a plethora of excuses.

    I don't know what the hell you guys are talking about. He was going 100%, which means if Heikki qualifies for a world cup, he'll only be ~2 seconds off Sam's time once again.

    Sam Hill is actually an elvish descendant to the throne of Rivendell.

    The borrowed bike was too heavy, & weighed 33#.

    Nah – he bear-hugged the second double, picked it up, and then moved it back about 5 feet - that’s just how Sam breaks in his jerseys every year.

    Random Fact About Sam Hill:
    When Sam Hill goes to 5-Star restaurants he orders the Kimbo Slice.

    hmmmm – I think you mean Rennie.

    Yes. Eventually Sam Hill will become so fast that he will only compete with himself from the future.

    This could put him in a difficult situation with his sponsors as they will not feel comfortable with direct market competition.
