Show snippets – on why pro athletes eat rubbish
“It’s a difficult area to go into, but the problem is obviously this: all cycling teams are looking for a sponsor. Once they have a sponsor that will bring in not only products but also money that’s the one they will use! Dis-regardless if the products might not be very good for you, that’s what you have to use!
That’s the main problem. Also, if you as a rider are not very interested or educated within nutrition, if it says on the packaging or box that it’ll give you energy and electrolytes and so on, you believe it. You don’t take into consideration that maybe they haven’t thought about fluid absorption and sugar content and all these things.
I saw a lot of stomach problems with many riders”
