New ambassadors for Rouvy: Frederic Funk and Marten van Riel

Rouvy has announced the addition of the Middle Distance European Champion, Frederic Funk, and Belgian National Champion, Marten Van Riel, to its team of brand ambassadors.

Frederic Funk is a multiple-time national champion and has competed in numerous international events, winning several IRONMAN 70.3 events and making the top five at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in St George, Utah. His Challenge Family wins include a European Champion title, 2 x Challenge Walchsee-Kaiserwinkl, Challenge Peguera-Mallorca and Challenge St Pölten.

Funk said: “My priorities for 2023 will be the highest ranked world stage races attracting the best athletes in the world: PTO Opens, PTO Collins Cup, Ironman 70.3 World Championship (already qualified for) and Challenge Family’s The Championship (already qualified).

“I am going to use all the Rouvy app features to the fullest to be ready for them in the best possible shape. Setting or chasing some of my own PRs or records on Strava Live Segments on Rouvy promises to be fun.”

Marten Van Riel is known for his impressive performances in Short Distance and Middle Distance triathlons. He won Ironman 70.3 Dubai in 2022 and was second at the 2021 World Triathlon Championship Finals in Edmonton, Canada.

Van Riel said: “I am excited to join the Rouvy community and help promote the benefits of indoor training. Rouvy will be a key part of my training routine, and I’m thrilled to be able to lead the rides and races on real race routes and interact with other athletes around the globe, whether they’re just starting out or are seasoned pros.”
