(Paris, France – July 29, 2018) – Wahoo Fitness, sponsor of Team Sky and BORA-hansgrohe, is excited to congratulate Wahooligans Geraint Thomas and Peter Sagan on their Tour de France victories.

The overall victory is Thomas’ first grand tour win, and the sixth for Team Sky. In addition to the overall win, Sky also earned a third-place spot with defending champion Chris Froome. Sagan’s win in the Points Classification brings his total number of green jerseys to six.

“We’re so excited for Geraint, Peter, and both of their teams,” said Wahoo Founder and CEO Chip Hawkins. “We’re very fortunate to work in partnership with some of the world’s best athletes, and we’re proud that our KICKR and ELEMENT BOLTs can be a part of the exacting strategy necessary to take wins in the world’s greatest cycling race -- congratulations to all of our sponsored athletes who raced the Tour, and especially to Geraint and Peter.”

Team Sky relies on the Wahoo KICKR smart trainer and KICKR HEADWIND smart fan to warm up for races, and for indoor training leading up to Pro Tour events, while BORA-hansgrohe trains and races with the ELEMNT BOLT GPS computer, the world’s easiest to use, and most aerodynamic cycling computer. Sagan rode with a custom green BOLT to match the point leader’s jersey that he captured on stage two.

“Winning the Tour de France requires not only the highest levels of fitness, skill, teamwork, and tactical savvy, but also equipment that performs flawlessly under very challenging conditions,” added Hawkins. “We’re honored to be able to help support teams like Sky, BORA-hansgrohe, and KATUSHA-ALPECIN, giving them access to our best-in-class products in order to enhance their training while also helping them achieve these incredible results by helping them go faster on the bike.”
