AI-based bike fitting platform will ensure Canadian speed skaters have an optimal riding position for off-ice training
OTTAWA, ONTARIO – An exciting new partnership between Speed Skating Canada and MyVeloFit will help make professional bike fitting more accessible to all members of the Canadian speed skating community, allowing them to get the most out of this important off-ice training activity.
MyVeloFit brings together advances in AI-based video analysis with the knowledge of top-level bike fitters to deliver a service that puts the power of personalized bike fitting and sizing in the palm of every rider’s hand. Using any mobile device, cyclists can get personalized advice on which bike size fits them best, as well as how they can make adjustments to their riding position to ensure an optimal fit.
Founded in 2020 by cycling enthusiasts Jesse Jarjour and Justin Goulding, MyVeloFit was created to help riders everywhere improve their cycling experience. The company has quickly become a leader in this space, having performed over 100,000 virtual bike fittings for some 55,000 cyclists since their launch three years ago.
Joe Morissette, Chief Executive Officer, Speed Skating Canada
“Cycling is an important part of every speed skater’s training plan and having a proper fitting bike will ensure our athletes can get the most out of this valuable off-ice activity. This new partnership with My Velo Fit will provide speed skaters from across country with access to professional, AI-based bike fitting, a service that was previously out of reach for many of our members. While our athletes are best known for reaching incredible speeds on their skates, their time in the saddle is extremely valuable in helping them achieve their potential on the ice.”
As part of this new partnership, the short track and long track athletes within Canada’s National Program will each receive a free premium membership to the MyVeloFit app, as well as access to online support from an expert bike fitter to help them get their ideal fit.
The partnership benefits also extend down to Speed Skating Canada’s entire membership base, providing skaters, coaches, officials and volunteers across the country with a discount code towards a subscription to the MyVeloFit app.
Justin Goulding, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer, MyVeloFit
“As a Canadian company, My Velo Fit is honoured to partner with Speed Skating Canada to support their athletes with all the tools they need to perform at the highest level. Through our advanced AI bike fitting platform and professional reviews, we aim to ensure that every athlete’s pedal stroke complements their skating stride, aiding in their training and reducing risk of injury. This partnership represents not just an alignment of two organizations, but a shared vision of pushing boundaries and optimizing performance for Canada’s speed skating champions.”
