I met him more than 20 years ago and enjoyed every opportunity we had to share a meal and discuss his ideas about business and the sport of triathlon. His product was central to my coaching business over the years and he was personally responsible for several unique opportunities that I've had during my career. Throughout countless phone calls and lunches, either in Seattle or trade events, I found Chuck to to be a thoughtful and curious person always striving to find new ways to support athletes and coaches.
Chuck Wurster was, without question, a complicated man, but also a good man. I am grateful for all that he contributed to our sport and I am grateful to have called him a friend.
It is with a heavy heart that those of us here at RacerMate must tell you that we are closing the doors on CompuTrainer. Technology and competition from larger companies have both eaten into the marketplace. As a small company with the premier indoor trainer in terms of performance and durability, we have found ourselves in a place where we cannot continue. It has been a marvelous 40+ years and we have enjoyed sharing in the victories and friendships we have made along the way.â [signed]
