Joining the Wahooligan family in 2016 is 24 hour Mountain Bike World Champion Sonya Looney. Sonya will be using the Wahoo KICKR and KICKR SNAP Power Trainers this season.

A Little About Sonya

Sonya is an American rider turned pro in 2006 focusing on XC. Sonya found her love for the sport of cycling in 2003 with spin classes at the gym during her training for a marathon, and turned truly addicted when discovering a mountain bike. Since then she hasn’t looked back. Sonya had an incredible 2015 seeking out the most difficult endurance races in the world. Most notably is breaking her arm and still winning the World Championship 3 months later!

“Personally, racing is about testing my personal limits, expanding my global frame of reference, and seeing the world.”

Sonya has big plans for 2016 including racing her first Enduro, defending her title at the 24 hour World Championship, and taking her speaking career to the next level.

Training with the KICKR and KICKR SNAP

“I live in Canada (although I am American!) and winter is a major challenge. We spend a lot of time riding indoors due to snow and extreme cold. This winter, I have some big goals. I’ll be defending my 24Hr Mountain Bike World Champion Title in February in New Zealand. It’s their summer so I need to keep working on my form! I’ll be doing my intensity on the KICKR and am really excited to have the best technology right at my feet!”
