Long distance triathlon series organiser, Spirit Multisport, has announced a global partnership with Tacx, a specialist in the development of technology and training equipment for athletes in over 80 countries.
‘The partnership sees Tacx supplying the Spirit group’s coaches and professional and age group triathlon teams with high-quality training equipment.’
(Back in February, Garmin signed a definitive agreement to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Tacx. The acquisition places Garmin firmly in the indoor training space – a fast growing area boosted by the popularity of platforms such as Zwift, The Sufferfest and TrainerRoad, among others.)
“Tacx, as a renowned global brand was a great choice for our teams and athletes,” Spirit Multisport CEO, Tom Sutton said. “Tacx products are exceptional training tools for our triathletes, particularly as our training programs have a focus on turbo workouts.”
Tacx CEO, Koos Tacx, welcomed the new partnership, saying “Our vision is to let athletes perform better. Indoor training in general is a growing market and we see that more and more triathletes use our bike trainers and software to train more efficiently.
“We are very pleased to be collaborating with Spirit Multisport as a foundation partner so that we can provide training equipment and technology to assist athletes to achieve their goals.”
