Sam Jarrett Athlete Ambassador

triathlete triathlon cycling

Sam is a triathlete who finished top 5 in his first ever race. He talks to Sundried about life as a triathlete. 

Have you always been into sport?

Yes! Before I got into cycling, I was a cross-country and 800/1500m track runner.

What made you decide to enter the world of cycling?

I thought I needed a big change from running when I fell out of love with it, and cycling just gave me that new kick which I no longer had for running.

What’s been your favourite race to date and why?

My favourite race so far has probably been the Fakenham Town Centre Crit this year - the circuit was fast, technical and really bumpy which made for a really fast and hard race - finishing in the Top 10 was also a bonus!

And your proudest achievement?

A top 5 finish in my first ever race was definitely a big one for me, but I'm also happy with my performance at National ITT last year.

Have you ever had any racing disasters/your toughest race yet?

We all have our crashes on the bike... It happens, and I think it's important to accept the risk.

How do you overcome setbacks?

After races where things didn't quite go to plan, or a bad training session, I'll often get my cyclocross bike out and just have a good whip around!

What advice do you wish you'd been given before you started competing?

Just go for it! Don't keep saying "I'll do this next month". Just turn up, have a go, and enjoy!

What are your goals for 2019?

In June I have the TTT National Championships, shortly followed by the qualifiers for ITT National Championships in July - all being well I'll qualify for Nationals, and I'll have races around the country scattered in between so that I can get enough British Cycling points to get to Cat 3 next season.

Who do you take your inspiration from?

I definitely take inspiration from guys like Mathieu van der Poel - he is such a crazy and powerful rider, and really revolutionising the sport - guys like Peter Sagan are also a great reminder of what our sport is really about.

What do you like about Sundried and what’s your favourite bit of our kit?

I really love the Cadence cycling kit range - I think the aero fabric kit used looks really cool (and aero gains!) plus the colour and styling makes for a really pro look.
