TrainingPeaks, the complete web and mobile endurance training solution for athletes and coaches, has announced a partnership with Cycling South Africa, the governing body of the sport in the country.
“CyclingSA is thrilled to partner with TrainingPeaks as it opens up a vast array of opportunities for all members of CyclingSA from participants looking to complete their first event, to professional athletes and of course the coaches,” said Alasdair Garnett, Chairman of Coaching for CyclingSA and Vice President of Gauteng Cycling. “In addition to the software, TrainingPeaks’ vast library of information on all aspects of training, as well as online education resources, will provide our athletes and coaches with valuable insights.”
The partnership will provide CyclingSA coaches, high-performance athletes and members the ability to better track and monitor their training to reach their cycling goals. Through this new partnership, all CyclingSA members will receive a 20-percent discount off the price of Premium Athlete and Unlimited Coach Edition accounts. Additionally, TrainingPeaks will provide Premium Athlete and Coach edition, Best Bike Split and WKO accounts, as well as technical support for all CyclingSA High Performance coaches and riders.
This gives CyclingSA’s top cycling coaches the opportunity to train national cyclists at the top-end of the sport, especially as they are preparing for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
“We’re thrilled by this new opportunity to help grow the sport of cycling in South Africa on both the age-group and elite level,” said Jim Miller, TrainingPeaks’ Director of High Performance.
“The TrainingPeaks suite of products will help more cyclists of all levels reach their goals, as well as help national coaches more precisely track and analyse their athletes’ training.”
