When it comes to racing, Sam Laidlow admits that going out hard is “all I know how to do.” After taking second at the 2022 Ironman World Championships (and setting a new bike course record in the process), the young Frenchman is feeling good about his rookie experience. In this finish-line interview, Laidlow takes us through his Kona debut, including what Gustav Iden said when he made the pass in the final miles of the race.
