VirtuGO launches full version of its virtual cycling and coaching platform

VirtuGO has launched its ‘state-of-the-art’ cycling and virtual coaching platform after 15 months of beta testing.

Michael Rogers, a former three-time TT World Champion and Grand Tour-stage winner from Australia, has launched the “first indoor training platform with professional cycling DNA to help everyday cyclists reach their fitness goals”.

“With the release of VirtuGO, we are one step closer to delivering our vision of creating a gamified training platform that passes on the knowledge and experience of 30 plus years of professional cycling. With a few clicks of the mouse, cyclists of all fitness levels will have easy access to world-class and science-based coaching and supporting content to help them reach their individual personal health and fitness goals,” said Rogers.

“For the past 15 months, our 10,000 plus member testing community has been putting VirtuGO through its paces, and pushing our development team. I’m very thankful to all those who have contributed and provided their invaluable feedback during the beta testing phase. As a token of our appreciation we will be giving all active beta testers a free subscription until the end of September 2019.”

Cyclists of all fitness levels can download VirtuGO and enjoy a ten-day free trial. A monthly subscription fee is also available. This gives users access to riding in VirtuGO’s gamified virtual world, combined with the many training programmes and single sessions that form the platform’s cornerstone.

VirtuGO’s vision is to create the “world’s most advanced virtual cycling platform that analyses cycling data and metrics in real-time and dynamically adapts to ensure the user is always training optimally”. “With VirtuGO our aim is not to create another virtual cycling simulator. We want to show everyday cyclists how quickly they can improve by applying proper structure and periodisation to their training schedule,” added Rogers.
