The partnership will give USA Cycling National Team Athletes a free WHOOP membership and discounts for coaches and all USA Cycling members.

USA Cycling announced on Monday their partnership with WHOOP, the human performance company. The partnership will enable National Team Athletes and their coaches with the tools they need to optimize athletes’ training and make informed decisions in the heat of the competition—with visibility into individual and team performance based on personalized sleep, strain, and recovery data. Using the team dashboard, coaches, trainers, and staff can make better decisions to reduce fatigue, overtraining, and injury among their athletes—while respecting athletes’ privacy.

“WHOOP has a revolutionary approach to training and performance data management. They will give the Team USA athletes, coaches, and support staff more insight and data points. Allowing the team to make better-informed decisions about performance and recovery for each athlete,” said Jim Miller, USA Cycling’s Chief of Sports Performance. “WHOOP provides an evident edge in understanding recovery and performance. We can unlock a rider’s potential with more data around their activities, the strain they’re under, what’s working for their recovery, and race performance.”

“We’re excited to partner with USA Cycling and empower its members to achieve their goals on and off the bike,” said Jeremy Powers, WHOOP Senior Marketing Manager of Cycling. “We work daily with some of the best cyclists, coaches and teams from around the globe. Riders like US road champion Lauren Stephens and the EF Education First - EasyPost team use WHOOP day in and day out to be their best. We’re ecstatic to support the work Jim and Team USA are doing, and be a part of the USA Cycling community."

In addition to the National Team support, WHOOP will offer USA Cycling members a 15% discount on their products and services, including the all-new WHOOP 4.0. USA Cycling members can access their member benefits by accessing the Benefits portal on their Membership Account.

Licensed coaches with USA Cycling will get a 20% discount on WHOOP products. Through athlete empowerment, the riders can make more informed decisions about their health by communicating better with their coaches and in turn reducing their risk of injury or overtraining.
