As he optimises his training with the Wattbike Atom, Adam Bowden said “I am super excited to announce that I will be partnering with Wattbike. Since I started training with the Atom I’ve seen not only how my training can be much more specific to my event but also how my coach can track my progression with the more detailed analysis of my sessions that Wattbike’s data allows.”
He continued “I am really going to benefit from features such as Pedalling Effectiveness Score – improving my efficiency will help me absolutely nail the bike leg.”
Adam Bowden has competed at the international level in athletics on the track, road and cross country. He was a county level swimmer and also represented England at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in the Steeplechase finals.
In 2008 Adam was British National Champion and Olympic trials winner in the 3K steeplechase. Later that same year he moved into triathlon as a member of the Trigold programme, British Triathlon’s talent identification programme funded by Barrie Wells that aimed to fast-track runners into world-class level triathletes.
He was invited to join the World Class Performance Programme in 2010, and training full time in Loughborough, Adam went on to represent GB in the World Triathlon Series, his best achievement being 4th place in Leeds. In 2017 he went on to record many more top 10 finishes and finished 9th in the world rankings. He achieved his first IRONMAN 70.3 win in Dubai in 2019.
Adam now lives and trains in Wales, living with his girlfriend Rhian and two stepsons Harri and Rhys, training with the NTCPW squad in Cardiff.
Richard Baker, CEO of Wattbike, said “I am absolutely delighted to welcome Adam to the team and for becoming a Wattbiker. We are looking forward to supporting him in the upward trajectory of his triathlon career. Adam is a huge talent; he has an intelligent and dedicated approach to training and racing, and I can’t wait to see what new heights he will hit.”
Originally developed and endorsed by British Cycling, Wattbike continues to work alongside leading sport scientists and engineers to deliver detailed and precise data to athletes, producing such ‘ground-breaking technology as the patented Polar View.’
The company notes that, unlike other indoor trainers, Wattbikes use chains and sprockets to create Real Ride Feel, while the unique Climb Mode automatically adjusts resistance to replicate the gradients of legendary climbs including Alpe d’Huez, Mont Ventoux and Monte Grappa. The Wattbike Hub app is able to track and display 37 training metrics while ride data is automatically uploaded to the athlete’s personal page for analysis and sharing.
