Team WYN 2018
Applications are now CLOSED. Applications for 2019 will open in SEPTEMBER 2018.
Who are we?
Team WYN is a group of like-minded endurance athletes who love to train and get dirty. We train hard but play harder, and don't take ourselves too seriously. We love to have fun, but we also consider suffering a form of fun.
We are a cycling and triathlon community – a brand that’s about more than just the apparel. We are about the roads, the stories, the coffee and the wine. We are a revolution - we are WYN Republic.
Who is the WYN Republic Ambassador?
Members of Team WYN are rock solid people & athletes, but people first. Being an avid triathlete is important, but results aren't everything. We're looking for people that share our love of the game and want to impact the endurance community for the greater good. The only non-negotiable prerequisites are a love of life, a positive outlook, and belief that a healthy endurance lifestyle can be life changing. We'd love members who enjoy bringing people together for workouts or beers, and encouraging new folks to get into the sport.
If you become a member of Team WYN, what's in if for you?
* complimentary team starter pack (including a team-only trucker, of course!)
* custom team-only gear at a very deep discount.
* Free world champs kit for all 2018 qualifiers
* discounts on the entire WYN republic in-line online store offerings
* Team-only discounts with our sponsor partners (you are not required to train/race with affiliated sponsor gear/nutrition, but you'll probably want to!)
* Team WYN gatherings at races (mostly in Australia & US to start), social rides, happy hours, features on our website & social channels
What do we expect from you?
If you embody the values stated above, you're already most of the way there. In addition, we are looking for ambassadors who:
- Plan to race at least 5 times in 2018
- Offer something unique to the endurance community. Are you a coach? world-champs calibur athlete? social media maven?
- Want to and are willing to promote WYN republic & our team sponsors at races and on social media throughout the year.
- Applicants should not have any obligations to wear another team, brand, or club kit/uniform for 2018.
How do I apply?
Want to be part of Team WYN in 2019? Check back here in September
- Do I need to be fast to be part of Team WYN?
Nope! We'd like you to have an anticipated race schedule of at least 5 races in 2018 to be considered for the team and we're glad you're just getting out there if you bring strengths in other areas (community development, social media, etc). However, if you are an especially talented triathlete who is frequently on the podium, we'd love to hear about it as we do love to see our gear going FAST and this will be one of the things we're looking for in our well-rounded crew.
- Can I apply if I’m a runner or cyclist but not a triathlete?
You can apply, but I'm not sure this is the perfect match for you in 2018. For cyclists, we certainly have all the gear, but we probably won't have too many community events geared around cycling-only. For runners, we're still working on our running line. Hopefully we can add to the program in 2019.
- How long does the ambassador program go for?
You will be considered a member of Team WYN from January 2018 to December 2018.
- Do I have to pay to be part of the team?
There is no fee associated with being a member of Team WYN. Once you are accepted, you can purchase as little or as much of the team kit & other gear as you like.
- What if I'm not from USA or Australia?
You can still apply to be a member of Team WYN, but please note that you will be responsible for shipping costs and any customs/import duties that are incurred upon entrance of your goods to your country.
Thanks for reading and we look forward to your application.
