BORA - Hansgrohe

BORA – hansgrohe is one of the leading professional cycling teams in the world and with ambitious goals, the right sports nutrition is hugely important. HIGH5 works closely with the team to ensure that our products are fit for purpose and help the team achieve their goals.

Since 2015 BORA is the main sponsor of UCI WorldTour Team BORA – hansgrohe, with hansgrohe joining the title sponsor since 2017. The team‘s owner and principal is Ralph Denk, who also managed the Team NetApp (2010 – 2012), the Team NetApp – Endura (2013 – 2014), and the Team BORA – Argon18 (2015 – 2016) based in Raubling (Bayern/GER).

In less than five years the team established itself in the UCI WorldTour, finishing in third place in the 2018 WordTour team ranking. It was the only UCI Professional Continental Team that participated in only three years in all three Grand Tours.

BORA – hansgrohe is using HIGH5 products during training and competitions to maintain optimum performance by constantly fuelling with bars and gels. Fuelling is key in modern cycling, as the performance level in the UCI WorldTour is extremely high with lots of riders being able to compete for victories. After hours of intense racing, the one who still can deliver his optimum performance will take the win. HIGH5 is a strong supplier to BORA – hansgrohe on their hunt for success.

Vicky Holland

Vicky Holland is an English triathlete who is part of the GB Olympic set up.

Vicky went to the London Olympics in 2012, however due to an unfortunate bike crash placed 26th, but since then she has become a figure head in the world of women’s triathlon. In 2012 Vicky became a World Champion as part of the British Mixed Team Relay squad then repeated this feat in 2014. The 2014 Commonwealth Games were a positive turning point as she secured her first major individual medal with a Bronze and bettered that with a Gold in the Mixed Team Relay along-side the Brownlee brothers.

Vicky took it up a notch in 2015, grabbing two wins on the ITU circuit in Cape Town and Edmonton. Along with these impressive wins she consistently achieved podium finishes throughout with a crucial 3rd at the Grand Final in Chicago, which secured her place at the Rio Olympics. Now well into the 2016 season Vicky placed an incredible 3rd at the Rio Olympics, grabbing herself a Bronze medal, an exceptional achievement on the world stage.

How HIGH5 fits in:

With multiple disciplines across each day, I really use the whole range of HIGH5 products; my drinks bottle is with me all day and I enjoy the Energy Bars during my longer sessions. Recovery Drink is a great help in getting me back on my feet after tough endurance days. Its a great product that helps with all aspects of my training and racing.

Top tips for aspiring athletes:

Enjoy what you’re doing and always train with people.

GB Taekwondo

GB Taekwondo currently has nineteen fulltime athletes who train at the National Taekwondo Centre in East Manchester on the World Class Performance Programme. The squad includes a range of fighters from all over the country, most notably, London 2012 & Rio 2016 Olympic Champion, Jade Jones, double World Champion, Bianca Walkden, and two-time Olympic medallist, Lutalo Muhammad. The sport itself has sixteen weight categories which are combined during the Olympic Games into eight:

Flyweight (-58kg for males and -49kg for females) which currently has Hassan Haider, Charlie Maddock, Jordyn Smith and Maddison Moore fighting under.

Featherweight (-68kg for males and -57kg for females) this includes Bradly Sinden, Christian McNeish, Josh Calland, Jade Jones, Emelye O’Brien and Kyla Julien.

Welterweight (-80kg for males and -67kg for females) which involves Damon Sansum and Lauren Williams.

Heavyweight (+80kg for males and +67kg for females) this comprises of Mahama Cho, Lutalo Muhammad, Brandon Jewell, Jonathan Bangura, Jack Spall, Rebecca McGowan and Bianca Walkden.

Despite Taekwondo being a Korean sport, Great Britain has fast become a force to be reckoned with, just last year the season ended with the nation being first on the medal table at the WT Grand Slam in Wuxi, China and the World Taekwondo Grand Prix in Manchester. From securing a bronze medal at Beijing in 2008 to eventually going on to historically win gold and silver on home soil at the London Games as well as, gold, silver and bronze in Rio 2016, the team are looking to make history once again in Tokyo in 2020.

How HIGH5 fits in:

GB Taekwondo use the HIGH5 range throughout their training and to fuel their success on competition day. As the athletes train solely inside, HIGH5’s ZERO tabs provide a great profile of electrolytes to keep them hydrated in often hot and humid conditions.

During longer training sessions HIGH5 Aqua Energy Gels are the teams go to. As a source of easily digestible carbohydrate, they act fast during intense sparing to keep the athletes fuelled to perform at their best. Some like to add a little caffeine kick in their too.

Recovery is key to the team’s approach. Post-training the Energy Bars, Recovery Bars and Recovery Drinks are used to help kick-start protein synthesis to facilitate recovery and replace carbohydrate stores, particularly if the athletes are training again later that day.

Top tips for aspiring athletes:

Make sure you are meeting your total energy requirements each day. Don’t be scared of carbohydrate, most sports rely on carbohydrate as a fuel source, so to perform well you need to eat plenty of it!

Nail your recovery, especially if training twice per day. Prepare your post-session nutrition in advance.

Hydration places a huge role in both performance and health. Sip frequently and don’t rely on thirst as an indicator or dehydration, if you’re thirsty, chances are you’re already dehydrate.

Don’t neglect your micronutrients. We can get carried away with “hitting our macros” and miss out on some of the essential vitamins and minerals.
