Altitude Training Systems (ATS) is proud to announce a new partnership with Scott Bikes and Velosophy Cycles for the 2013 Mountain Bike Season. ATS will support a squad of 8 riders including endurance guru Oliver Dharma-Ratne, upcoming star Vanessa Boatwright and world’s best trainer Chad Glover.
The squad will compete in a variety of events throughout the year including the Rocky Trail Series, Chocolate Foot, Dirt Works, Husky 100 and the Scott 24hr in Canberra. “We are very pleased to be working with Scott Bikes and Velosophy” said David Clarke, Sales and Marketing Manager for Altitude Training Systems. “We like to work closely with the retailers of our altitude equipment. We had great success last year with our own amateur team winning the mixed 4's in the Scott 24 Hour Challenge. The association with both Scott and Velosophy is a way to show how effective altitude training can be at improving your performance.”
The team is riding the 2013 Scott Spark 920 so there are no excuses from an equipment point of view. It’s all down to altitude training to get results as the team take advantage of ATS Base equipment that simulates altitude of up to 3,400m. Oliver Dharma-Ratne competed in the first of the Chocolate Foot series races last weekend, finishing 2nd in the Men’s pairs. Next event on the calendar is this weekend’s Dirt Works where the team will compete in both the 50km and the 100km course.
Stay tuned for all the team’s updates and successes throughout the year.
