Man cannot race on bread alone. The organizers of the Amgen Tour of California along with Skratch Labs chef Biju Thomas make sure of it. Each day during the eight-day race, complete breakfasts and dinners are freshly prepared to feed 400 people, including the entire peloton, team directors, coaches, mechanics and soigneurs, and key race support staff.
It was a hot one last month during the Amgen Tour of California and everywhere you looked you saw the ubiquitous Skratch Labs neutral support vehicles mobilized to keep the peloton and race staff hydrated. I had never tried their drink mix and was grateful to receive half a dozen samples of the Exercise Hydration Mix to take home, which I put to the test out on the open road.
Can you image the Yankees and the Red Sox eating breakfast or dinner together before the big game? Or the Packers and the Bears? One of the many extraordinary things unique about cycling is that the riders and team staff have breakfast and dinner together each and every day during races. At the Amgen Tour of California, Skratch Labs is preparing the nutritious and delicious meals to nourish and replenish the riders and team staff.
