HOW TO USE THE PRODUCTS
BORA – hansgrohe nutritionist Robert Gorgos explains what products you should take when:
BEFORE YOUR RIDE
It’s important to prepare your nutrition ready for your ride ahead. Fill your BORA – hansgrohe team bottle with 500ml of water and add a sachet of HIGH5 Energy Drink. If you have a second bottle cage, prepare a second bottle of Energy Drink. Take the rest of the products (except for Recovery Drink) with you on the ride, for example in your jersey pockets.
DURING YOUR RIDE
Drink little and often for a steady supply of energy and fluids to stay hydrated. You will want something early on to kickstart the ride, Energy Bar Caramel is the riders favourite to eat. Just like with your fluids, aim to eat little and often, Energy Gummies are a great way to top up your energy levels so include them in your fuelling routine.
As the intensity increases, grab an Energy Gel from your jersey. When your legs start to suffer, and you need an extra lift, take Energy Gel Aqua Caffeine Hit. The extra caffeine will give you a performance boost and help you push on to the finish.
AFTER YOUR RIDE
Key to the team’s nutrition strategy is recovery. Drink 400ml Recovery Drink, mixed with water or milk, as soon as you finish to ensure you recover properly and are ready to turn up ready to perform on your next ride.
