Fancy taking your cycling to the next level? Garmin is looking for six amateur cyclists willing to train like a pro to reach their full potential as part of the Next Level Programme.
Run in partnership with Olympic Gold Medallist, Dani Rowe and professional cyclist Matt Rowe, the programme will select a group of "pro-amateur cyclists" to participate in a two-month training programme of the sort usually exclusive to pro cyclists. The programme will culminate with entry to Garmin's annual 50km Ride Out in September.
Six selected cyclists will use the newly-launched Garmin Edge 530 and 830 alongside a customised training programme to helpmove to the next level of performance. The chosen cyclists will take part in supervised rides and receive tailored nutritional guidance across a two-month period.
20 runners up who will receive training tips directly from Matt and Dani.
In September, the final six participants will take part in Garmin's annual Ride Out. The ride, designed by Action Medical Research's cycling experts, is a fully marshalled 50 miles route through the New Forest, offering one of the most scenic cycling experiences in the country.
Speaking of the programme, Dani Rowe said; "We are thrilled to have partnered with Garmin to create the Next Level Programme. This initiative truly offers the kind of training usually only available to the pros so Matt and I are proud to be offering it to amateur cycling enthusiasts up and down the country."
Jon Oliver, Managing Director UK & Ireland, Garmin added; "By partnering with Dani and Matt, we are offering a chance to have world class coaching experience from champion cyclists, coupled with some of the most advanced training techniques in the world - all distilled down to training sessions that work individually for the selected six. Never before has such a pro experience been offered to amateur cyclists and we can't wait to see how the winners' performance improves.
We are excited to launch the competition and get our innovative products onto their bikes to help with training, racing and adventure."
