Healthspan has been supplementing the health and performance needs of the Great Britain Cycling Team for many years, providing them with products from Healthspan Elite, its sports nutrition brand.
Healthspan takes advantage of more than 25 years of expert-led product development and the latest research to cater to the needs of high-performance athletes, and entered into an Official Partnership with British Cycling and the Great Britain Cycling Team at the beginning of 2021.
British Cycling athletes take a number of Healthspan Elite supplements. Examples include Collagen Repair to support cartilage, Kick-Start Caffeine Gum for energy and mental alertness, Whey Protein Isolate for recovery, and a selection of immunity products such as Vitamin C, Gold A-Z Multivitamin and Zinc Defence Lozenges.
British Cycling is the national governing body for cycling as recognised by the UCI world governing body, and works across all levels and eight disciplines of the sport (BMX Freestyle, BMX Racing, Cross Country Mountain Bike, Downhill Mountain Bike, Cyclo-cross, Road, Track and Cycle Speedway).
Now, with over 147,000 members and based in Manchester at the HSBC UK National Cycling Centre, the organisation provides the support and encouragement people need to get riding their bikes for the first time, and is home to the hugely successful Great Britain Cycling Team.
Continued success at the highest level is inspiring a boom in participation across the nation. There have never been more opportunities to ride a bike, be it for fun or sport, and British Cycling is at the heart of this growth. British Cycling also works hard to represent cyclists' interests at all levels, including campaigning on important issues such as road safety.
Great Britain teams topped the cycling medal table for each of the last three Olympic and Paralympic Games. In Rio, Olympians won 12 medals, including six gold, and Paralympians won 21 medals, including 12 gold.
British Cycling Performance Director, Stephen Park, said: "Healthspan Elite have quickly become proven experts in their field, and to have them on board in an official capacity is excellent news for all involved with British Cycling."
Healthspan Sales & Marketing Director, Chris Fisher, added: "We've been supporting the Great Britain Cycling Team for many years, so it feels very natural to make our relationship official. To become the Official Sports Nutrition and Vitamin and Supplement Partner to the team and British Cycling is another proud milestone for Healthspan.
"We look forward to playing our part in the success of the team for many years to come, as well as collaborating with British Cycling to promote the health benefits of staying active and good nutrition to all."
