Le Tour De France 2013 Beckons!

With Sir Bradley Wiggins holding the crown and Chris Froom begrudgingly sitting in second, 2013’s Tour De France cannot come quickly enough for all at Discount Supplements!  With it being the 100th tour and following such a strong show at last year’s event, it’s no surprise that this year’s race is more hotly anticipated than ever before!

For this reason we’re hopping on a plane and showing our support for Team Sky to hopefully witness a British 1 and 2 on Sunday the 21st July.

We place a lot of emphasis on all that is endurance and cycling, and we have even more interest in the ergogenic aids/supplements that go into the preparation, competing and recovery from the 21 stages that make up the tour! During our time in Paris our Dietitian and Sports Nutritionist Tom will be attending the Sport Nutrition Conference. The invitation only conference is presented to just 100 experts over 3 days and focuses on subjects such as dietary protein needs in endurance cyclists, novel ergogenics in competitive cycling, dietary strategies for maintaining proper hydration, and practical recommendations for periodising protein intake in training to name but a handful.

The information presented is truly cutting edge, delivered by leading authorities in sports nutrition from around the world. We will be blogging on all that is discussed and disseminate the key findings to our customers, as well as using the science to develop our supplements and further validate the information we give to our customers.

With Froom winning the Tour of Oman, the Criterium International and the Tour of Romandie already this season, Sir Wiggo needs to be on his ‘A’ game when the 29th June arrives…Good luck chaps!
