July has come and gone, and normally that would mean the best riders in the world have been duking it out in France, to see who will ride down the Champs-Élysées wearing the Maillot Jaune. This is not a typical year, and with the real race postponed to the end of August, pro riders are instead taking to digital roads to battle it out in the Virtual Tour de France. With most of the outdoor races getting eighty-sixed for this summer, Wattbike is giving away an Wattbike Atom smart bike to help you claim that elusive Zwift win.
To be entered for a chance to win, all you have to do is answer the question, when did Wattbike start making indoor training bikes?
While smart bikes are just starting to gain steam, with many of the popular trainer brands dipping their toe into complete bikes, Wattbike has been making training bikes since 2008. They proved to be such a valuable training tool, that 28 of the 31 medals for track cycling events at the London Olympics were won by Athletes who trained using a Wattbike, and the smart bikes are now used by the UCI and national bodies around the world, for training and talent ID. Current Time Trial World Champ and Twenty20 Pro Cycling rider Chloe Dygert also trains with a Wattbike, and has ridden an Atom Smart Bike to four, top-five stage finishes in the Virtual TDF.
The Atom isn't your typical gym bike; it's fully smart-enabled and speaks the same language as your favorite training app to simulate what you see on screen — with the ability to generate 2000-watts within +/- 2 per cent accuracy and simulate gradients up to 25 per cent.
The Atom also offers advanced performance metrics, like live pedaling dynamics through the Wattbike Hub app, and every touchpoint can be quickly, and easily adjusted to mirror your real road bike. Best of all, it means you won't wear out chainrings, cassettes and chains, grinding out miles in your personal pain cave.
