Sam Welsford: Tour Down Under, Road Nats & Paris Olympics

January 15, 2024

In episode 91, I chat with Australian sprinter and new Bora Hansgrohe recruit, Sam Welsford. Sam and I discuss the recent Australian Nationals and where it might be headed before getting stuck into some Tour Down Under thoughts. Sam explains why being a sprinter is much more than simply putting out 1700W, and we look ahead to the Paris Olympics and what’s in store for the Australian endurance team.
