Sam Hill and The Reactor | A Video Sent To Spite Us?

by 2

Nukeproof has just released a new video with Sam Hill riding his home trails, and we think it’s been sent to spite us.

Made to showcase Sam Hill’s home trails in Australia, his Nukeproof Reactor, and his riding steez, this latest video from Nukeproof makes for tough watching from the soggy depths of a UK autumn. Drifts of dust, the ground littered with crisp dry leaves, heat loving palm fronds and golden sun….

We’re trying to look on the positive side. Those heat loving plants are probably really scratchy and hurty to land on. Those crisp dry leaves are definitely a fire risk. All that dust is going to get in your eyes and following your mates is going to result in a coughing fit. No, we’re all quite happy here as we are, mouldering gently. We can look at this gallery without a shred of envy.

It’s all fine. We don’t mind. There are things that kill you in that undergrowth. Frankly, we’re astounded Sam Hill isn’t wearing full pads and gloves, just to minimise the amount of flesh exposed to things that bite.

And look, sunset. Glorious golden light. How nice, how blissful to be riding home by headtorch with hundreds of pairs of eyes looking back at you out of the bushes, and fast skittery wriggly things crossing the trail in front of you, and that totally harmless spider web that was threaded across the trail.

Yeah… we don’t mind. Sam Hill can keep his home trails. We wouldn’t mind that bike though.

Hannah Dobson

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    If it helps your right about the spikiness…. Crashing on Perth trails can be exciting! And pea gravel is uniquely and hilariously not grippy at all…..

    Sam Hill, Brendan Fairclough, Brook MacDonald- always great to watch.

    You can hear that frame crack at about 2 mins in 😉
