The One Day Ahead gang are delighted that High 5 have agreed to become full time sponsors providing the nutrition for our ambition (no more of those I promise!). High5 will be well known to anyone who has taken part in a sportive or triathlon in the UK with their distinctive yellow gels and green energy bars always visibly strapped to the outside of bikes or sticking out of jersey pockets. High5 have been showered with awards over the past decade and in 2011 alone they were awarded “best energy gel”, “best energy bar” and Functional Sports Nutrition’s “Best Performance Product” 2012 for their 4in1 sports drink.
We feel incredibly proud that High5 have chosen to provide us with our full nutritional requirements throughout our training and during the tour itself allowing us to benefit from their huge range of products and increased performance. This is due to their unique nutritional formulas allowing us to ride 26% further at the same speed than with conventional sports drinks. That will hopefully save us nearly 572 miles which will certainly be a huge bonus!
We will be giving updates as to the High5 products we are using throughout our training and the benefits they have given us/ keep giving us before, during and after training rides.
Energy Source 4:1
EnergySource 4:1 is an advanced fuel for use during exercise. It contains 4 parts carbohydrate to 1 part protein. Reseach shows that this ratio can provide endurance athletes with more energy than carbohydrate alone and that protein protects muscles from being broken down and used as fuel during endurance training and competition.

An effective blend of antioxidants (natural bioflavenoids and carotenoids) help neutralise free radicals.
