If you haven’t heard of Sam Dale, that’s because he isn’t the loudest or most brash character on the World Cup DH circuit.  Sam lets his riding do the talking.  A UK legend, Sam has the honor of gracing the cover of the very last issue of Dirt Magazine.  A brute of a lad, Sam has always been one to push bikes to their absolute limits.  This year, he made the switch from Madison Saracen to GT.  We’ve spent a bit of time with him today and got the full rundown on his new Fury.  He’s made some interesting comparisons to his Saracen and stated that it’s definitely been a seamless transition.  More below…
