TrainingPeaks and British Cycling Extend Partnership Through the 2016 Olympics and Beyond
We are pleased to announce a two year partnership extension with British Cycling, the National Governing Body for cycling in Great Britain. The extension means that British Cycling’s top riders and coaches will be using TrainingPeaks from now until the end of 2016.
TrainingPeaks will provide the tools needed for riders to upload workout data, which can then be analyzed by sports coaches, directors, doctors, and dietitians to improve customized training programs. “TrainingPeaks is a one-stop shop for everything we need in effective data analysis,” says Shane Sutton, British Cycling’s Technical Director. “The more we are able to understand about how our riders are training, the more we can tailor programmes to drive success. We’re now fully focused on the road to Rio and it’s great to know that we will be able to continue to benefit from using TrainingPeaks to help ensure that we are performing at the highest level.”
This extension will continue the relationship that officially began in 2012. In addition to being the official training software of British Cycling, TrainingPeaks also provides product discounts to all British Cycling athletes and Certified coaches.
“TrainingPeaks is proud to continue as the Official Training Software Supplier of British Cycling,” says Dirk Friel, TrainingPeaks co-founder and President. “Our goal has always been to provide athletes and coaches with a software solution to plan training, analyze data, and achieve results. We are happy to provide a solution for all cycling enthusiasts from recreational riders to Olympic gold medalists.”
