Australian National Series round 3 // Canberra, Australia- February 5, 2012
Team Monster Energy-Specialized riders Troy Brosnan and Sam Hill were keen to continue their dominance of the Australian National Series podium and tear apart the Stromlo Forest Park downhill track.
With a new top section, as well as a big pedal stretch, both Sam and Troy were looking to see where their fitness stood leading into the South African World Cup round in Pietermaritzburg next month. “The new top section is pretty sick. More like a real Downhill track than the old top section, with multiple lines and a decent amount of off camber. It suits me well,” said Troy. Qualifying went well for Brosnan posting the fastest time of 2.19.60 and Sam in 5th with 2.24.98 with a mistake and a mechanical Sam knew he had more time in the bank.
