THE SKY’S THE LIMIT FOR SCIENCE IN SPORT AND TEAM SKY

 

The 2015 Tour de France winners will work with SiS and its team of sports nutrition experts, to create bespoke products, support and advice to fuel their world-class athletes including Chris Froome, Geraint Thomas and new 2016 signing Micha􀀀 Kwiatkowski..

Nutrition plans will be tailored for each individual athlete and will include a wide range of SiS products, from its SIS GO energy and electrolyte gels, to the new SiS protein range. Every product will be specifically designed to benefit each athlete’s performance, enabling them all to train harder, race faster and recover quicker. Since 1992, SiS has supplied endurance nutrition products to Olympic and world champions, Tour de France winners and amateur athletes. Britain’s most decorated Olympian, Sir Chris Hoy, is also an elite consultant for the company. Dr James Morton, team nutritionist at Team Sky, said: “Nutrition is integral to any successful cycling team and we’re looking forward to working alongside SiS next year. It’s a company I know well and I know how seriously they take their position in the endurance sports nutrition industry. SiS are truly committed to providing trusted and evidence-based products, which is something that is extremely important to Team Sky.”

Ashley Read, marketing director for SiS, said: “Science underpins everything we do and we’re really proud to be fuelling Team Sky with our industry leading products next season. “We have a huge responsibility and opportunity as the Official Sports Nutrition Supplier to continue to be innovators in the market and fuel Team Sky to even more

success in 2016.” Hussein Fahmy, head of legal and commercial affairs for Team Sky, said: “We’re thrilled that SiS will be the Official Sports Nutrition Supplier for Team Sky. Their unrivalled knowledge and expertise in sports nutrition is outstanding. Team Sky are constantly evolving and looking for new ways to improve and SiS will bring unique insights and high quality products which will complement our team perfectly.” SiS products are manufactured in the UK at the company’s Innovation Centre in Lancashire. All SiS products are Informed-Sport tested and accredited; SiS worked closely with the HFL anti-doping laboratory to develop a world class evolved threepronged testing system to minimise the risk of product contamination.
