Emily Batty Signs With Canyon

Jan 19, 2021 at 16:28
by Alicia Leggett  
Canyon has announced that it has signed Emily Batty for 2021 and beyond.

The 32-year-old XCO racer has earned four Canadian National Championship titles, two third-place World Cup overall rankings, two World Championship bronze medals, and a fourth place at the Rio 2016 Olympics.


After 12 years of representing Trek, she's moving forward to a new chapter.

bigquotesLast season, everything was so unknown, and I didn't want to waste valuable mental and physical capacity in 2020 without knowing races were for sure happening. So, while my performances could have been way better, I feel like I'm going into 2021 more hungry, rested, and motivated than most of my competitors. And now, I have some huge goals I'm very excited about: I have Olympics, World Championships, and World Cup goals. I want to go big on the performance side of things this year.Emily Batty

Emily said she is looking forward to more involvement with product development. Her race bike will be based on the current Lux CF SLX 9 Team, Canyon said, with a Fox and Shimano spec.


bigquotesEmily is a fantastic addition to the Canyon family – both for her ability on the bike as well as what she brings in terms of her personality. I am convinced that, with all her experience, she won’t only perform when it’s race time – she’ll also provide us with valuable feedback that we can use in the further development of our bikes.Canyon CEO Armin Landgraf

 I don't understand why anything having to do with Emily gets the most ridiculous comments here. She does so much for the sport, she looks like a supermodel, and she legit rips, i.e. Bronze at Worlds. What's not to like? Yet you are all bull horns and "ya bro" for selfish douchebags doing something stupid and/or insane for likes. I would never read any comments if I were her. You are all just brutal.

 @BaldBilly Great comment. I'm a 53yr old male who has been coaching a female sport for more than half of my life, and I use Em as one of the very few athletes that I point my young players towards looking up to, even though the sport I coach (softball) has nothing to do with MTB racing. I know most of the posters on PB are young kids, and even younger "men", and maybe once they grow up, they will hopefully see the world differently.,,,, maybe.

  • 24 6
 Because her marketing started to eclipse her results. Most PBs don't have instagram, don't want instagram, and think if you have instagram you're probably not riding enough. So when she's posing with her porsche and finishing mid pack in the races people start calling shenanigans. I understand riders have sponsors and need to keep them happy but it's a fine line of not being called a sell-out. That and her complete "thanks, no thanks" to Trek after a decade on the team reeked of diva.

But, yes, because she's pretty, has posted incredible results, and is a successful business woman haters gonna hate if she doesn't always reach the top. Maybe a little schadenfreude?

 @Powderface: You honestly make americans look like scholars with that comment. I though you Canadians are supposed to be better.

Most every single athlete, especially in MTB, is getting paid directly because of marketing - the ones that are not are involved in product design/testing.

How that athlete does in actual race somewhat contributes to that, however its by far not the deciding factor of athletes worth in that regard. Athletes underperfom in a season (like Aaron Gwin) and still have no issues with sponsors, because they are well known, are respected in the industry, and people still show up to watch them ride.

So who care if Emily is posting with Porsches or finishing mid pack. If she gets people, especially women, into cycling, and from the buisness side influences bike sales, she is doing her job.

If you don't like that, don't watch. Complaining about it makes you look like an incel.

 @Powderface: Riders are paid to sell bikes — whether that’s through competition, image, name recognition, whatever. A company has to figure you’re going to bring in more than what they’re paying you in return. Winning a World Cup title, world championship, being a brand influencer on social media — doesn’t matter if you’re selling bikes.

Show you a paid rider that doesn’t race? Hell, there was just an article about that yesterday. You’ve got YouTubers who are well-paid to ride. Danny MacAskill doesn’t race to my knowledge, and I bet he’s among the top 5 paid riders out there.

I bet you he’s up there.

 @mi-bike: Hahaha! When he comes back to tell me Semenuk competes, I’ll point out his exact words were, and I quote: “Show me a high paid sponsored MTB rider that doesn’t race.” Well, there’s two, and like I said, my guess is that they’re both near the top.

I mean, look at Danny’s sponsors — Red Bull is probably the biggest action sport sponsor out there. Then there’s a little up-and-coming company called Santa Cruz. Magura, where he has his own signature line of brakes. Five-Ten. Then Lizard Skins and Muc-Off for some snack money. Probably missing a couple. And his recognition is off the charts. Everyone who has ever mountain biked has seen his videos, and more importantly, non-riders have seen his videos. How many non-riders (or even riders for that matter) can tell you who Bruni or Schurter are, never mind where they finished in the World Cup last year. When it comes to buying bikes, who’s going to have more influence as a whole? Who’s worth more to their sponsors?

And I’m not saying that to diminish anything any racer has ever accomplished Those guys are beasts. But are they worth more to their brands than a guy like Danny? Hard to say. They are all up there and are likely paid accordingly.

Most companies have comparable failure rates, like any corporation, they project failure rates and modify products as needed.

 Lots of XC racers run actual Schwalbe tyres (or other non-Maxxis for that matter). Maxxis is not nearly as dominant in XC as in DH, if at all. Neither is blacking out competitors' tyres as common there. Maybe it's because it doesn't matter as much as in DH or maybe because there is no single holy grail of XC tyre design like the DHF/DHR (which is also not necessarily objectively the single best; see Magic Mary or even Maxxis themselves moving on and introducing the Assegai).

 You are right. Can't argue with the data. I thought that Neff 5'6", Courtney 5'4", Prevot 5'5", etc. were all much taller. Batty at 5'3" looks way shorter than them when standing next to them. Must be the shoes.

Rebecca McConnell looks taller than 5'2", she looks like one of the taller riders to me. But I love that Sina Frei is super short, but can really kick some butt.
