Commenting on the partnership, Lucy Charles-Barclay said:

I have been using a Wahoo Trainer since my early days in the sport and I can’t wait to start using the full Wahoo indoor training ecosystem and ELEMNT BOLT computer on my Specialized bikes for the 2019 season and beyond. As many people know, a great deal of my training on the bike is done indoors so it’s really important I have access to the best equipment available. My partner and coach Reece and I are always focused on every minute detail in preparation and our Wahoo bike trainers have been a major part of developing my cycling strength. Wahoo have been pushing the boundaries of indoor training since developing the first wheel-off trainer, so I’m really looking forward to having access to their full range of innovative products as I focus on getting the best out of myself.

Lucy Charles-Barclay burst onto the scene in 2014. Having missed out on selection for the 2012 GB Olympic swimming team, she learned to ride a road bike and re-focused her efforts to Triathlon. Winning her age category at the 2015 IRONMAN World Championship just a year later, Lucy proved a depth of natural talent that saw her go onto compete against the best in the sport.

Fast forward to today and Lucy has achieved two silver medals in the professional category of the IRONMAN World Championships and is a multiple Ironman and Half Ironman Distance Champion including winning the Ironman African Regional Championships in course record time in 2018. She has kicked off 2019 in style, winning the Ironman African Championship for the second year in a row, in a time of 8:35:31.
