SIS Team Sky 3 Hour Endurance Pack
Science in Sport have launched this money-saving SIS SKY 3 Hour Endurance Pack of energy food, gels and drink to mark their appointment as Team Sky's sports nutrition suppliers.
That's right, Chris Froome, Geraint Thomas and co will be chomping the same SIS GO bars and and supping the same SIS GO drink our co-op has been supplying and we've been using since the early 1990s.
To make this endurance pack all the more appealling, it comprises an assortment of bars, gels, sachets and a bottle which would normally cost the equivalent of £16 if you bought them individually.
It's called the 'three hour pack' because this is what a Team Sky rider might consume, at the rate of 60g carbs per hour, over the course of a hard, three-hour ride (plus recovery).
2 x GO Electrolyte Sachets (Lemon/Lime flavour)
1 x SKY 600ml Bottle
1 x GO Mini Bar (Chocolate flavour)
3 x Isotonic Gels (Orange, Lemon Lime, Blackcurrant)
1 x Caffeine Gel (Berry flavour)
1 x REGO Recovery Sachet (Chocolate flavour) containing protein, carbs, electrolytes and minerals
