Downhillers prepare for next Oz MTB series

World champion silver medalists Sabrina Jonnier and Sam Hill have stepped up their training a notch in preparation for Round 2 of the National Mountain Bike Series Downhill at Nannup, Western Australia, this Sunday. 20 year-old Hill, from Glen Forest in Perth, has shown 24 year-old Jonnier from Hyeres, in southern France some of the training locations in and around Perth. "We just did our first cross country ride since world's," said Hill yesterday.

Jonnier has tried to relax after a busy season where she won the prestigious World Cup series. "I have just started easy training. After January it becomes more important," explained the young Frenchwoman, who will ride mainly in America next year. "I'm running and riding cross country and am also riding a small motor bike to work on my technique," she said.
