Here on the Wheelworks team, we are motivated by numerous factors. Our inherent competitive spirits. How amazing we all look in tight neon green tank tops. Toned physiques. Shiny medals. A wall of bibs. The ability to eat burgers and drink beer because we are “in training.” Our enduring friendships. The pride of accomplishing something we never thought we could accomplish.
In addition to those, we have an actual incentive program to motivate us even more! What’s the incentive program, you ask? Let’s hear it from Katrina Ladd, our Incentive Program Director.
In 2016, Wheelworks Multisport decided they wanted to give back to their athletes and developed an incentive program. This followed a similar decision to eliminate the ERG (Elite Race Group) program, which strongly supported one male and one female athlete each year with extra perks and funds.
So now that the incentives are flowing back to the group, the question is: how do we earn points? Let us count the ways:

In the first year of the incentive program, we were able to further award 38 teammates (40%) for their hard work! Wheelworks Multisport athletes participated in 52 swim, bike, run, and triathlon races with 44 podium finishes. We couldn’t be more proud - go green!
Need an extra incentive to join? Remember our team does fun runs that end in margaritas. What else does anyone need? :)
