Pinkbike MTB Athlete Awards

Congratulations to Sam Pilgrim (Official Sam Pilgrim Page) for being nominated for the Pinkbike MTB Awards in Slopestyle / Freeride Athlete of the Year category together with Brandon Semenuk and Cam Zink. It was truly an epic season for our NS Bikes rider with many wins around the world which earned him the title of FMB World Tour Champion.


Slopestyle / Freeride Athlete of the Year
Sam Pilgrim was a force to be reckoned with on the FMB World Tour this season. With his big bag of technical tricks and high flying style, the gap-toothed Brit was hard to miss aboard his flourescent yellow NS Bikes hardtail. Pilgrim won a number of contests, including the FISE Slopestyle, Swatch Rocket Air, and 26TRIX, and placed second at Crankworx Les Deux Alpes and at the Bearclaw Invitational. Most importantly, he managed to escape the season ending injuries that claimed several of his fellow competitors, and his results earned him the title of FMB World Tour Champion. While he still hasn't quite managed to translate his bike skills into the freeride arena of Red Bull Rampage, as a pure slopestyle athlete Pilgrim is surely one of the best riders around.
