Samuel Welsford

Australian national track team

Sam Welsford was part of the Australian 4000-metre team pursuit that broke the world record at the UCI Track World Championships in February 2019, before backing up an hour later to win the scratch race at the event. Welsford also won gold in the same two events at the Commonwealth Games in 2018 and was part of Team UniSA-Australia in the 2018 Tour Down Under. He says riding for Team UniSA is a huge privilege. “Our team is really young this year, but I don’t think that will limit our results – we’re hungry, young riders and we want to go out there and mix it up with the best in the world,” he says. “We’ll go for a strong team ride in every race and go out there and get some results.”
