Australian sprint cycling champion Matt Goss has joined Momentum Energy as an ambassador for the Victorian-based energy retailer.
The 26-year-old Tasmanian is preparing for the 99th Tour de France, scheduled to start on 30 June. The legendary race will follow its unique 3496.9km, 21-stage course to end in Paris on 22 July. Just days later, Matt Goss will be chasing an Olympic medal in London, in the mens’ road race event.
Momentum Energy is proud to support Matt as he prepares to tackle the ultimate test of his power, stamina and endurance as a professional cyclist. Announcing the partnership, Managing Director Nigel Clark said: “There is a strong alignment between renewable energy and cycling. Both represent the generation of power through a kinetic force without any emissions. And like our parent company, Hydro Tasmania, Matt Goss is from Tasmania.
“As well as applauding the endeavours of professional cyclists, millions of Australians have embraced cycling as a truly sustainable pastime and part of a healthy lifestyle,” Mr Clark said.
Cycling is increasingly becoming the pastime of choice for the Australian business community. Momentum knows its customers and their professional networks are passionate about elite sporting competitions and the athletes involved. The relationship with Matt Goss will help Momentum engage the cycling community and deliver its pledge to be the outstanding energy retailer for Australian small business.
The champion cyclist said: “I am very happy to have become a Momentum Energy ambassador. I rarely think about the power created by a professional cyclist during a race. Especially not when I am fighting for a stage win or when I’m half way through a big climb. It is fascinating to think about my body as a human power plant and the level of effort I need to maintain to generate the power to win.
“I am originally from Tasmania, and Momentum’s connection to Hydro Tasmania is really important for me,” Mr Goss said.
Momentum Energy is proud to support Matt Goss and wishes all the Australian athletes at the Tour de France and London Olympics the best of luck in their pursuit of victory.
