Okay this probably won't be the last Fort William post, cause there's still a bunch more videos to come in and a few more race reports (Trek and the Syndicate are lined up straight after this post). So I don't want to take a single thing away from Cam Cole's second cause that is just amazing and so deserved; we here at Spoke just can't say enough about it! But as Sam Blenkinsop's old sponsor (Matt from Wide Open) just pointed out, Sam is bad (not bad meaning bad, but bad mean good). The guy is wearing a wrist brace, he's just back on the bike after breaking his wrist and he's done no training over summer at ALL, then he qualifies second and finishes sixth! Mental health! Over on Vital MTB there is a pic of Sam in his last practice run (Photo 7) that shows just how bad Sam is!
