Who doesn't love a Wattbike? Ok, so you need to love a bit of pain and bleed watts but they're one of the leading brands in the indoor cycling sector. We wasn't asked to be ambassador and we've made peace with that but don't think we on any level can compete with the World Time Trial Champion Chloe Dygert...
A world leader in indoor cycling performance, Wattbike is the go-to training tool for serious amateur and elite athletes around the world, offering unrivalled technology and connectivity; combining cutting edge innovations with precise data and analysis. Real Ride Feel technology makes it the closest experience a rider will get to the feel of the outside road, inside, and detailed analysis of every single ride is achieved through the Wattbike Hub App, distilling the data into easy to understand metrics to enable improvement over time.
Chloé uses her Wattbikes extensively in training and is really looking forward to formalising a partnership with the team. She says, “I am excited to announce that I will be working with Wattbike as an official Wattbike Ambassador this year. Wattbike has been an important part of my training and I rely on it to measure my progress as I get ready for big races. It’s great for training when the weather is challenging, but I use it even in good weather for quality targeted workouts. My Wattbike and I have a love-hate relationship, but mostly love. My training sessions on the Wattbike are usually the toughest, but the data we collect is important so my coach can gauge my fitness gains and my readiness for races.’
Chloé has enjoyed an immensely successful last few years both on the track and road.
In 2016 she competed at the World Cup in London winning the four-in-four world title with her US team mates, and in the same year won a silver medal in the team pursuit at the Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro. 2017 saw her become the world champion in the team pursuit for the second time at the UCI Track World Championships in Hong Kong, also winning the world title in the singles pursuit, and going on to win her first Pan American title in the individual time trial on the road. In 2018 she won two titles at the UCI World Championships in the team and individual pursuit, setting a world record two times in a row. And she achieved a standout performance in late 2019, when she won gold in the individual time trial in Yorkshire, UK, commanding a remarkable lead over some of the long-established names in the sport.
Richard Baker, CEO of Wattbike says, ‘We’re absolutely delighted to be working with Chloé, and to be able to support such a talented athlete in the very early years of their career. Chloé has incredible drive and tenacity, with a fantastic approach to training and racing. She has used Wattbike in her training for several years already, and so we are very excited to be able to formally support her with her goals. We look forward to seeing what this year holds for Chloé, starting with the World Track Championships later this week.’
