Sam Douglas – Coach Sydney

Sam races at the professional level and has been on the Swift Multisport team for many years. After recently completing his Education Degree, he is using his teaching skills to coach and mentor our Sydney athletes. Sam has a vast amount of training and racing experience after growing up in NSW junior talent programs. He switched to the non-drafting format a few years ago to finish his studies and travel. We are looking forward to seeing the results now that he is able to focus on racing and coaching again. If you see him around the park he is hard to miss, and if you’re lucky enough to hold his wheel for a second he’s a great wind break.
