Samuel Gaze- Alpecin Deceuninck
Samuel Gaze

Above all, Sam Gaze is an excellent mountain bike rider guaranteed to win a few XCO events each year. We'll always remember his stunning performance at the 2021 XCO World Championships, climbing over 80 spots after starting from P87 on the grid. Gaze is also a valuable asset to our road team, and last winter got to discover cyclocross at the highest level... and he loved it! Our likeable Kiwi was out with a knee injury for a large part of the 2022 spring season after surgery in March.
