SAM CLARK - Why He Won't Be Back To Defend His Fourth C2C Title

For the past three years, Sam Clark has dominated the Coast to Coast World Multisport Champs winning in both 2016, 2017 and 2018. This year Sam is stepping away from the shot at a fourth consecutive title. Instead, Sam has decided to take the year to re-asses his sporting future and up-skill his education in the fields of engineering and business.

Now Tauranga based, Sam moved there from his home town of Whakatane to train with a wider base of athletes and training groups. "It gets pretty lonely slogging it out on the bike by yourself for hours on end, there's only so many years you can do that by yourself". Having just come off a win at the Mount Festival's Enduro Race, he plans to focus more on adventure racing - his true passion. "Adventure racing is what I call more 3D, there is more scope for real adventure".
