Sam Welsford captures first Team DSM podium of 2022 at Scheldeprijs

It has been a slow start to the year for Team DSM, with the squad going through the early months of the season with nary a podium in sight, let alone a victory. Scheldeprijs and new recruit Sam Welsford, however, broke the drought with the Australian rider, who has just switched from the track to the road, taking his first top three result as a road professional at the rain soaked mid-week Classic. 

The 26-year-old, who has won a bronze and silver medal on the track at the Olympic Games and also was Australia’s criterium champion in 2020, came in with the chase group behind Scheldeprijs solo winner Alexander Kristoff (Intermarché-Wanty Gobert). Danny van Poppel (Bora-Hansgrohe) won the sprint from the chase group to take second, with Welsford the only rider able to hang onto his wheel.
