Targeting CX: Wahoo in official partnership with TRINITY Racing

35

Following the European Cyclocross Championships in Silvelle (Italy) last weekend, Wahoo Fitness has announced a new partnership with Tom Pidcock’s British Continental cyclocross team TRINITY Racing.

‘Keen to help nurture rising stars within the sport, Wahoo will provide the team with ELEMNT ROAM GPS computers, TICKR heart rate monitors and KICKR smart trainers.’

TRINITY Racing is a British Continental CX team that re-launched in October 2019 to build on the success of young British cross riders in recent years. Formerly known as TP Racing, it is led by current World and European U23 Cyclocross champion Tom Pidcock (20) who, after a successful season in 2018-19, is shifting his focus to compete at the elite level.

Tom Pidcock will be joined by fellow British riders Cameron Mason (19) and Abby-Mae Parkinson (22) whose recent results in both cyclocross and on the road have marked them out as two rising stars within the sport.

TRINITY Racing’s riders will have access to a wide selection of Wahoo’s connected cycling ecosystem. The team will warm up and train on the Wahoo KICKR and KICKR CORE direct drive smart trainers. The new ELEMNT ROAM GPS computer and TICKR heart rate monitor will also help ensure that data behind efforts can be collected and analysed to improve riders’ performance.

TRINITY Racing will be joining the Corendon-Circus team – led by current World and European Cycl-cross champion Mathieu van der Poel – in leveraging Wahoo’s technologies in the ‘pursuit of gains both major and marginal at the highest level of cyclocross.’

Commenting on the new partnership, Tom Pidcock said “Getting off to a strong start in cyclo-cross races is critical so it’s really important to get our race preparation right. Having the support of Wahoo and access to their smart trainers in warm-ups and training allows me to be in the best shape possible come race time. And then obviously, as cyclo-cross is a winter sport, sometimes training indoors is necessary. My Wahoo KICKR is an invaluable training tool as I know I can get the right session in whatever the weather.”

Wahoo’s CEO, Mike Saturnia, added “It has been fantastic to see the growth of cyclo-cross in the UK. We have a keen interest in helping to nurture young talent within the sport; so are proud to be able to provide the team with the best smart trainers, GPS trackers and heart rate monitors available. With TRINITY Racing’s riders competing across a number of different disciplines, it is critical that they have access to an ecosystem of products that can support this. Tom, Cameron and Abby fit closely with our ethos here at Wahoo and we look forward to welcoming them to the Wahooligan family.”

Trinity Sports’ Management Director, Andrew McQuaid, commented “At TRINITY Racing, we strive to support our riders with the very best equipment partners. In Wahoo, we are delighted to align with a leading player in the market who understand the important role preparation and attention to detail play in succeeding at the elite level of the sport.”
