Canyon Australia has just announced the signing of the irrepressible, and very fast, Sam Walsh. This kid is quick, he's loose, and he's got a big future in Enduro.

National Enduro Champ on Canyon

Canyon Australia is proud to welcome Sam Walsh to their talented roster of riders.  Joining the current crew, consisting of junior DH National Champion and all-round style king Baxter Maiwald, and Bright pinner Kaia Ellis, Walsh, the current Junior Gravity Enduro National Champion, will not only be looking to retain the Green and Gold in the Gravity Enduro discipline – this weekend he will be fighting for the XCO junior title at the XCO National Championships in Armidale NSW.

“We’re really pumped to have Sam join the team. It’s amazing to watch Sam ride a bike, the way he just puts the bike wherever he wants it.  That coupled with his immense enthusiasm for anything with two wheels, whether it be a CX race or DH racing or anything in between, Sam is up for it!  He’s going to be a great addition to the team” suggested Darryl Moliere, the Market Manager for Canyon in Australia.

“I’m really thankful and excited to be given the opportunity to join the Canyon family.  I’ve already got to know the Crew well and I love riding my bikes with them.  I plan to focus on Enduro racing as the Cross Country season draws to an end.” Said Walsh.

Sam will be campaigning aboard the Canyon Exceed hardtail for XCO and the all-new Canyon Spectral for Enduro racing.  Supporting Sam for the upcoming season will be his current wheel and tyre sponsors, DT Swiss and Maxxis.  New for Sam this season will be team partners Fox Head for clothing and protection, with SRAM and RockShox providing the components crucial to race day success.
