Getting to the finish line needs successful training supported by the right nutrition!
At first glance, mountain biking and road cycling are relatively simple sports: you sit on the bike, pedal hard and give it all you’ve got until your strength and stamina give out. Many cyclists reach this point sooner than they’d like.
In order to keep up the pace and finish strong the body must be supplied with the right amount of fluid and nutrients during endurance competitions or training. A healthy and varied diet that is adapted to your daily needs will give you a good foundation. Together with a targeted sports nutrition strategy BEFORE, DURING and AFTER training, you can get the most out of your training and improve your performance.
