(Not Sponsored) I’ve been sipping on @maurten_official this past week, it’s a super high carbohydrate electrolyte drink, 40g or 80g of carbs/500ml. It goes in as a liquid and forms as a semi solid gel in your stomach so that you don’t get stomach upset. I used the 80g over 3 hours yesterday with no food and no problems, it’s gonna be a game changer for me on long rides and races. Check them out, it’s pretty underground atm but also being used by all the top long distance runners 😉 📷 @pargyrop
I’ve raced as a junior once or twice on a TT bike but never trained on one, this is the first time 😂 With a 13km TT coming up in a race next month, @shauntheunicorn set me up on his rig so I can minimise the losses 🚴🏽♂️💨
Stage 2 MTCM: 10x5km hilly circuit with plenty of pain. It’s funny how riders can play games but if you try counter their game they loose their 💩 📷 thanks @jahnnieboy / @fruit4jam .. & @highcarbvegans for coming out to support
Post Stage 1 MTCM: I have never experienced recovery like I do now with just eating 🌱 After each stage, within 10minutes I’d have a banana x 2/3, almond milk, sunflower seeds, broccoli, maple syrup & ice smoothie followed by a big plate or two of rice and veg an hour or two later as well as heaps of water. I was blown away with how my body has been recovering and it’s something I’ll continue sticking to🚴🏽💨 📷 thanks @jahnnieboy / @fruit4jam
(Not Sponsored.. Just Cool) Meet the @airhub_cycle a front wheel hub that provides smart varying resistance depending on your desired power or heart rate. You can climb hills without going uphill, hit headwinds without any breeze, TT without the dangerous speeds or ride harder than the easy bunch whilst sitting in & slower friends. It’s adjustable on the fly with their mobile app and 4 training modes. Check it out and give them a follow to see what they have in store for the future! 🚴🏽💨
Never go full Super Sayan 🚴🏽🐉 This is 19 year old me, sprinting for third from a breakaway, stage 8, Tour of Tasmania. It amazes me that I was able to perform well at the time, given that when I look back now at how I was training, eating and not doing gym work it seems comical. I hung up the race bike from 2013 to 2016 and only recently have I started training anything close to the amount I used to. I'm still not sure how deep into racing I want to get, or how I'll go, but one of the motivators is knowing that I was able to do alright back then 🤙🏼
My Gear (Not Sponsored) Part 4: @vegan.athletic Apparel Jersey - The best looking jersey on the market I believe, made from Bluesign approved fabrics (AKA sustainable), a perfect fit (@danielbovalino has refined the jerseys over and over from this early model) and ethical production (everyone is treated well). I'm super excited to see what DB has in stall for the future of his company.
My Gear (Not Sponsored) Part 3: @searchandstate S2-R Performance Bib Shorts - Easily the bed fitting, most comfortable chamois and superior heavy duty, yet lightweight materials that I've experienced in a pair of cycling shorts. These bad boys are made in NY and you can feel the large amounts of love that goes into each garment. I also really enjoy the minimalistic design and colouring.
My Gear (Not Sponsored) - Part 2: Bontrager Ballista w/ MIPS Helmet - I'm not joking that when I first put this thing on my head shot forward because my neck muscles' memory was used to fighting more wind resistance even using my previous helmet. After many helmets this one is easily my favourite, it's super comfortable, looks awesome, has a great price for a top helmet, a really snug fit, the MIPS reduces your chances of brain damage during a fall and the crash replacement policy is the true testament of @ridebontrager 's main goal to provide safety to the consumer within their helmet line.
