The prestigious Belgian brand of food products and supplements for endurance athletes, joins Sea Otter Europe presented by Continental as main sponsor of the Etixx Girona Gravel Ride.
Used by renown professional cycling teams such as Quickstep, Astana, Tinkoff or Lotto-Soudal in the past, and Sports Vlaanderen-Baloise currently, Etixx offers maximum quality products and free of any anomalous substance, thanks to its extraordinary quality control.
“Our products are mostly developed for cyclists, based on the knowledge of the medical personnel of cycling teams and tested by the cyclists themselves, before being launched to the market. A fact that the amateur cyclist appreciates enormously”, Etixx points out.
Etixx has its product batches registered with Informed Sport to avoid contamination with substances prohibited by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency), and other sports bodies. “The Informed Sport program aims to work closely with supplement manufacturers and suppliers, reviewing their quality systems by analysing products and ingredients, to minimise the incidence of prohibited contaminants in sport”, Etixx explains.
This qualitative rigour is what gives Etixx such an important added value, as it doesn’t expose athletes to risks and they can choose products that are subject to quality controls that are superior to those required in elite sport.
“Etixx is a premium brand for its processes and formulations, which seeks to help those who take sport seriously, in a healthy, scientific and methodical way, whatever level they have”, describes Etixx.
Etixx Girona Gravel Ride
As the main sponsor of the Etixx Girona Gravel Ride, to be held on Sunday 27th September, Etixx will provide its riders with isotonic drink at the feed stations of the two possible routes (77 or 60 kilometres), which combine good condition forest tracks and secondary roads.
“It’s a top quality product, with neutral pH, and a mixture of sugars, which doesn’t cause stomach problems, and available in three flavours (lemon, watermelon or orange-mango), so the cyclist chooses his favourite”. Having completed this amazing Gravel event, riders will have the delicious Etixx Recovery Shake at the finish line.
Etixx will also be at Sea Otter Europe by Continental’s expo area, with its products and advice, for those who go to Girona on the last weekend of September (25, 26 and 27).
