Rider Q and A

Q&A with Sam Welsford


This month we asked you on our social media channels if you had any questions for Sam Welsford. On an easy moment during the Tour of Norway he sat down to answer a few of them!

Q: What are the biggest differences between road and track racing?

A: Track and road have their similarities and differences, but the majority of differences would probably be the volume and type of training required; lots of gym and on bike strength is required for getting the big pursuit gears up and running.

Q: What is your favourite race?

A: My favourite race is Paris-Roubaix!

Q: How did it feel to get that win pretty early into your full time road racing career?

A: It was an amazing feeling. I was so happy for the team as it was our first win of the season and we have been working really hard for it. I will never forget it, that’s for sure!

Q: Favourite Ice tea flavour?

A: Definitely any Arizona flavour but I think it would have to be Grapeade!

Q: Nils Eekhoff is asking: How big are your thighs?

A: Hahahah, for reference, two of Nils’ thighs are about one of my thighs – so that.
