He was invited to join the World Class Performance Programme in 2010, and training full time in Loughborough, Adam went on to represent GB in the World Championship Series, his best achievement being 4 th place in Leeds. In 2017 he went on to record many more top 10 finishes and finished 9th in the World rankings. He achieved his first Ironman 70.3 win in Dubai in 2019.
Adam is looking forward to optimising his training with the Wattbike Atom. He says: “I am super excited to announce that I will be partnering with Wattbike. Since I started training with the Atom I’ve seen not only how my training can be much more specific to my event but also how my coach can track my progression with the more detailed analysis of my sessions that Wattbike’s data allows.” He continues: “I am really going to benefit from features such as Pedalling Effectiveness Score – improving my efficiency will help me absolutely nail the bike leg.”
Richard Baker, CEO of Wattbike, says: “I am absolutely delighted to welcome Adam to the team and for becoming a Wattbiker. We are looking forward to supporting him in the upward trajectory of his triathlon career. Adam is a huge talent; he has an intelligent, as well a dedicated approach to training and racing, and I can’t wait to see what new heights he will hit.”
