It’s always worth packing some energy product in your hydration pack when heading out on longer rides, for as much as we’re fans of flapjack and tea as an energy source, getting your carbs in your drink is infinitely easier.
Allsports International is one of the UK’s longest established suppliers of performance enhancing energy products, with a range of products designed to speed up recovery, provide energy and help build and repair muscle.
The company has worked with many top athletes and coaches over the past 30 years, with a quite impressive line-up of athletes singing their praises. What’s on offer then? Plenty, as a look at the full range at www.allsports-online.co.uk reveals. But of interest to most cyclists though are the Summer Training formula and Amino Load recovery products.
First up is the Summer Training formula is 80/20 mix of carbohydrate and protein, as an ideal training fuel for hot conditions, and contains simple and complex carbs, proteins and essential vitamins. It was developed in conjunction with the first British rider to complete the infamous Race Across America (RAMM), Chris Hopkinson. It’s available in 1kg (£11.77) tubs (enough, it says here, for 20 hours of training), and in strawberry, Belgian chocolate and peach flavours. No artificial colourings, sweeteners or preservatives are used.
And for recovery following a ride, Amino Load is a formula packed with amino acids, carbohydrates and water. It is especially rich in the tissue repairing branch chain aminos for rapid recovery and muscle repair. It’s available in 500g, 1kg and 3kg tub sizes, priced £8.77, £12.77 and £33.77 respectively.
