Sam Long is Trek’s Newest Triathlete, Fulfilling a Lifelong Dream

Trek-Segafredo Team (United States) - Press Release: Sam Long on being one of triathlon's most open athletes, and riding the new Speed Concept

Sam Long doesn’t hide his emotions. His social media and YouTube pages are an unfiltered look at life as a triathlete, good and bad. 

Long doesn’t hide his confidence. He wants to be the fastest triathlete in the world. He cites his biggest competition by name. When he wins, he shows his joy. When things go wrong, he addresses them head on.

Long is 6’4 with a big grin, and he begins every dispatch with “yo yo yo,” giving him the air of a ’90s movie jock. But Trek’s newest triathlete is anything but a throwback. He’s one of the most refreshing young athletes in the sport. And though his open-book policy is partly a function of his personality, it also helps him on race days. 

“For me if I say, ‘Oh, I’m gonna do this,’ and then I put it out in the world, it’s like I damn well better do that,” Long says. “It kind of puts my back up against the wall, but in a good way. I think I thrive off that pressure.”
