High5, the leading UK sports nutrition brand, is delighted to continue its partnership with Downhill World Champion Danny Hart for 2012. High5 will supply the Team GIANT Factory Off-Road team with energy, hydration and recovery products for training and racing. Fans will be able to win a trip to the 2012 Downhill World Championships to meet Danny and the team, a competition run by High5 and Chain Reaction Cycles throughout May.
Danny made his name with a gutsy ride at the 2011 Downhill World Championships that landed him the rainbow stripes. On the back of a great season that saw him twice lose out to a near-perfect Aaron Gwin, Hart lifted his game to win by over 11 seconds with the kind of run legends are made of.
“I used High5 some years ago and they were the obvious choice when we looked for a nutrition partner last year. The products taste great and are scientifically formulated to get the most out of my training and racing. I use EnergySource X’treme as my pre-race energizer, so that I’m focused for my next run. I am looking forward to another great season with High5” said Danny.
The new deal will see the Giant Factory Off-Road team benefit from the latest generation of sports drinks. The team will consist of Carl Decker, Josh Carlson and Kelly Emmett. From cross-country Olympians to the fastest young downhillers in the world, this team was built to cover the entire spectrum of off-road competition.
High5 Director Mick Atkinson is delighted to have signed the deal; “Danny is a fantastic athlete and his results have been outstanding so it’s great to keep him on-board. Our focus is to improve the performance of both elite and club class athletes, but working with the best athletes provides us with important feedback to improve our products for everyone. We believe that our X’treme product range is ideal for adrenaline sports like Downhill Racing.”
