Sam Appleton on Gaming and Esports (Zwift PowerUp Tri Podcast #16)

70.3 specialist Sam Appleton joins us coming off of an impressive 8th place at 70.3 World Championships in Nice last month. For many users, Zwift is an outlet combining their love of gaming with their necessity for quality training. This is very true for Sam, and we take the chance to chat with him about his (and Jordan’s) love for gaming and esports.

We, of course, get a breakdown of the World Champs race as well as some exciting news about Sam’s plans for the rest of the season.

In the tech corner, Jordan talks about what to him was a surprise at Eurobike—that no one has released an answer for a 12-speed drivetrain on a smart trainer?!

About the Podcast:

The Zwift PowerUp Tri Podcast is hosted by former pro triathletes Matt Lieto and Jordan Rapp, lending their in-depth knowledge of the multisport to the Zwift Tri audience.
