PARTNERS WITH THE CANADIAN CYCLING ASSOCIATION TO REACH
Members of the Canadian National Cycling Team
will benefit from the ability to warm up for races on
Tacx’s premier line of Booster trainers.
(Ottawa, ON – December 09, 2011) The Canadian
Cycling Association (CCA) would like to welcome Tacx,
its newest partner that will help propel Canada’s
cycling teams to new heights across the world and in
the years to come. Tacx has a long history within the
sport, and the popularity of their cycling trainers
both at home and in the international professional peloton
is a testament to their innovation and foresight.
A hallmark of Tacx is the quality of the product and
the understanding that they can always strive to improve
their product. A passion for cycling and the drive to
innovate are perhaps the most important values shared
between Tacx and the Canadian Cycling Association.
Canada’s National Teams will now have the ability
to warm up at various races around the world on Tacx’s
new Booster trainer, or their Antares rollers.
“A good warm up is critical to an athlete's success
at a race,” said Jacques Landry, High Performance
Director at the CCA. “Partnering with Tacx allows
us to provide world class equipment to our National
Team which will aid them in realizing their potential
throughout the cycling season.”
Tacx’s Henk Remijnsen adds: “The Canadian
Cycling Association and Tacx’s shared drive to
improve will make the partnership a long and happy one.”
Tacx indoor trainers simulate the required road feel
so that both pros and enthusiasts alike will not miss
one day of training. Tacx continues to innovate, coupling
computer electronics to their cycle trainers to create
their very popular line of Genius and Fortius VR trainers.
The powerful motor brake simulates climbs and descents
and means that a rider can simulate their favorite training
rides and track their progress. Tacx is the premier
indoor stationary trainer company and proud sponsor
to eight UCI Pro cycling teams. For further information
