SiS has signed a new two-year deal to continue as Official Supplier of Sports Drinks and Sports Nutrition to Rapha Condor Sharp, the number-one-ranked British Continental cycling team.
The partnership renews a relationship which was launched in 2008 and which in the last year alone has seen major U.C.I. wins in Africa, Asia and Europe as well as an overall win in the Halfords Tour Series.
SiS will continue to provide all of Rapha Condor Sharp’s cyclists with the nutrition they require to ‘prepare, perform and recover’ in their gruelling training and competition regimes until the end of 2013. This includes a full range of nutritional products for hydration, energy and recovery, all developed by SiS’s highly-trained team of sports scientists, food technologists and physicians.
After a number of successful years, Rapha Condor Sharp has this year decided to pursue a change in direction, with youth development the central focus for the team moving forward. SiS Founder Tim Lawson commented, “We have partnered Rapha Condor Sharp during some incredibly successful years and we now fully support the team’s commitment to the development of young British talent. This is an exciting time for the team and we’re thrilled to be on board again. We look forward to contributing to the progress of young riders such as Felix English and Mike Cuming and are equally pleased to continue working with such talented individuals as Ed Clancy MBE and Andrew Tennant.”
Rapha Condor Sharp Directeur Sportif John Herety commented, “Despite the number of new young riders in the squad, we will be training and competing just as intensely this year, so rider welfare is key. The larger squad this year means that the younger riders will have more room to recover, but nutrition is also crucial. We’ve worked with the sports scientists at SiS for a number of years and we will continue to rely on their products to make sure our riders are getting the best nutrition available.”
