This third and final installment of our Tour de France technical partner blogs, is all about Team Jumbo-Visma our longest standing partnership.
History of the partnership
The partnership between Team Jumbo-Visma and Dynamic exists for some years already. It was formed when Dynamic was a brand under the Tacx company brand and was included as part of the Tacx partnership with Team Jumbo-Visma.
When Dynamic became independent in 2020, the partnership intensified. Team Jumbo-Visma stated that, with the increased focus on marginal gains in the pro peloton, it would like to continue the partnership but only if Dynamic developed the fastest chain wax on the market.
The fastest wax on the market
Which is what we did! Together with the Team Jumbo-Visma performance department we worked on a wax that would not only have extremely low friction, but would also maintain these properties at high wattages.
Speed Potion Wax
The result of many hours of development and testing together with Team Jumbo-Visma’s performance department, mechanics and riders was Speed Potion Wax. An extremely high-performance wax with low friction and optimal performance at high wattages like during sprints or on climbs.
Speed Potion Wax has proven to be as good in practice as in theory. With amazing results like:
- 2021 Amstel Gold Race – Wout van Aert
- 2021 Vuelta GC – Primoz Roglic
- 2022 Paris-Nice GC – Primoz Roglic
- 2022 Critérium du Dauphiné GC – Primoz Roglic
Not to mention many other (stage) wins! All the way up till the time of writing where in the 2022 Tour de France, Wout van Aert has all but secured the Points classification and Jonas Vingegaard has a 2-minute lead in the General classification! We are very proud to have contributed to these amazing results and are humbled by the performance of the team.
Naturally we didn’t stop at Speed Potion Wax and have kept on developing and innovating together with Team Jumbo-Visma to create the ultimate performance products
Future of Dutch cycling
Our partnership with Team Jumbo-Visma is not just about maximum performance for the World Tour team. We share the team’s vision that we have a responsibility to invest in the cyclists of the future. Hence, why we also partner with the Team Jumbo-Visma Academy where upcoming talent is prepared for the highest levels of the sport.
To also support the younger generations, we have a partnership with CyclingClassNL. An initiative from Team Jumbo-Visma and the KNWU (Dutch Cycling Federation), through which young talent is coached and supported.
Martin Truijens, head talent coach at CyclingClass NL said the following about the partnership:
‘We try to help our riders on all fronts of talent development, including bike care. Thanks to the partnership with Dynamic Bike Care, both the mechanics and the talents can learn how to perform optimal maintenance on their bikes. That is also part of developing cycling talent. Thanks to the partnership and the high-performance products of Dynamic Bike Care, we are assured that they don’t miss out in the bike care domain.’Martin Truijens, head talent coach at CyclingClassNL
