(Gettysburg, PA – February 18, 2021) The Colnago Gran Fondo National Series today announced a strategic partnership with Hyperice, the leader in recovery and performance technology and innovators of percussion, vibration, and thermal technology. Through education and access to Hyperice products, the partnership will enhance athlete performance and experience at Series events, as well as during the training leading up to events.
Athletes will have the opportunity to win various Hyperice products by participating in Series events – both the 9-event virtual E-Fondo Series and the Series’ 8 outdoor events throughout the season – but the prizes are just one benefit for riders. Hyperice will have a strong presence at all events this calendar year; both virtual and outdoor. In addition, Hyperice will provide Gran Fondo National Series participants with access to recovery and training content from Hyperice athletes and ambassadors, as well as exclusive purchase incentives.
“Recovery is crucial for performance, injury prevention, and the enjoyment athletes get from riding their bikes, but it’s also something few athletes know how to optimize,” said Series Director Reuben Kline. “This partnership with Hyperice puts the best recovery equipment and information directly into the hands of athletes so they can immediately start feeling better and riding stronger.”
“We’re excited to partner with the Colnago Gran Fondo National Series,” said Shawn Beitelspacher, VP Endurance and Specialty Retail at Hyperice. “Recovery is a key component in bike racing success and with the elevated experiences indoor cycling provides, it’s allowed cyclists to train harder than ever before. We see this series as a great forum to continue to educate cyclists at all levels of the benefits of using Hyperice recovery technologies.”
