Christian Vande Velde back on the Peloton Cycling Class Schedule

Pro-Cyclist Christian Vande Velde Back on Peloton Cycling Class Schedule

Surprise, surprise!  After purging all but two of his rides (both from early 2020), pro-cyclist and beloved Peloton guest instructor Christian Vande Velde, or CVV as he is known in the Peloverse, returns to the Peloton bike schedule this weekend!

CVV’s History of Awesomeness

For those unfamiliar with him, Christian Vande Velde is a former professional road cyclist and current NBC cycling analyst and founding team member of the Breakaway app.  CVV’s impressive cycling history includes: 2008 Team Time Trial victory at the Giro d’Italia, where he become only the second American ever to don the coveted maglia rosa; 2011 Tour de France Team Time Trial win and Best Team victory; two-time top 10 Overall Tour de France finisher (2008 and 2009); 2012 overall win at the USA Pro Cycling Challenge.

CVV’s History with Peloton

Over the years, Vande Velde has popped in for guest cycling stints on the Peloton platform and has maintained a passionate following among longtime members.  His guest appearances seemed to be all but finished, with no sight of him on the schedule over the last several years, leading many to assume that his time with Peloton had come to a quiet end.  However, it is most likely that his ability to get to the studio was hindered by his professional commitments with NBC as well as pandemic-related travel over the course of 2020-2021.

CVV’s Pro-Cyclist classes are known for their intense, no-nonsense coaching and metric cueing, and are particularly loved by Power Zone riders.  In other words, if you’re looking for a master-class in cycling, then this is the class and the instructor for you.

Newest Live Class

Whether you’ve been a fan of his for a while or you’re just becoming familiar with him and are CVV-curious, you can catch Christian on the bike this Sunday, April 7, for a LIVE 45-minute Pro-Cyclist class at Noon (ET).  Don’t forget a water bottle (or three).  You’ll need it!
