“As an Elite Rider, health making everything count and getting every detail right is as important as talent and time on the bike.
When I joined Velo29 for 2012 I considered everything the Team had on offer. The Race programme, no rx the Management structure and of course the products they use, most importantly of all, the Nutrition.
Bikefood was quite new to me, I was aware of the brand from their Sponsorship of Columbia – Bikefood MTB Team and I was keen to get my hands on some of the products!
My Winter preparation is all about big miles and the Energy Drink and Bikefood Bars were perfect for this. Easy to pallet and loads of energy, they really helped me through the long cold miles.
I was part of the UCI Tour Of Morocco Team. 10 days of racing in conditions from the Sahara Desert to the Freezing Rain in the Mountains. Carb’s and Protein were key to getting round this monster event! For all 900 miles I had a Bikefood Bottle and product next to me! The Gels were superb whilst on the bike, the refillable bottle is a revolution in bike nutrition, I’ll never use a tear foil gel again! The energy drink mix was great, it’s suitable for before during and after the event, this made the life of the songiuers really easy as previously they’ve had 3 sets of bottles, tailored to each rider!
The Bikefood products really kept us going all the way through the event.
Our next major outing is the Rutland International CiCle Classic and again we’ll be packing the Velo29 Team car full of Bikefood products, ready to take on Europe’s best riders.
See you at the road side,
