Monster Energy congratulates Sam Hill (AUS) on winning the Enduro World Series championship title in Zermatt, Switzerland. There’s nothing like a little drama to keep things interesting. It came down to the fifth and final stage of the last race of the year, but Hill successfully defended his Enduro World Series title and took home the championship for the third consecutive year.
In the shadow of the Matterhorn and the towering Swiss Alps in the town of Zermatt, Hill got to work early Saturday morning with a singular goal in mind, winning the series overall. Sitting in second overall coming into the race, Hill had his work cut out for him, but as he put it after Whistler “It’s really easy; To win the championship, I just have to win the queen stage and the race.” Long, rocky alpine stages covered over 33 miles of racing over 5 stages. With 2,800 feet of vertical to climb, and another lift assisted 12,000 feet, it was a huge day of racing.
