We get asked all the time "What does ROCTANE mean?" It means these are designed for high-intensity and long-duration activities just like the IRONMAN.
PLUS ENERGY FROM CARBOHYDRATES! Just like our Energy Gels, ROCTANE Energy Gels deliver 100-calories from easily digestible carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) that use non-competing pathways to maximise carbohydrate absorption and utilisation while diminishing stomach distress.
DON’T FORGET THE CAFFEINE. Not all ROCTANE Energy Gel flavours include caffeine, but those that do deliver 35 mg of caffeine, which can stimulate your central nervous system and decrease perception of pain or effort during exercise. It also enhances performance by increasing focus and concentration. Caffeine can help delay fatigue by mobilising fat for fuel, which spares precious glycogen stores.
Plus with multiple flavour options, you will never get bored...
Cyclists notoriously have tight thoracic spines or mid back. We spend hours hunched over on our bikes and everywhere else in our daily lives.
Sonya Looney is pro mountain biker with a world championship title to her name. She gives us some crucial stretching and mobility exercises to combat the 'cyclist's hunch'.
