In this chat:
We learn about Will’s background and how he came into the sport, including detail on an absolutely horrendous injury that he suffered in a crash last year.
We discuss the age old classic in cycling circles: the fasted ride, including an exploration of how Froome managed his weight on the way to winning last year’s Giro d’Italia.
Vegans and vegetarians of the world: what we need to be careful of as riders if pursuing these diets.
The supplements and vitamins that are important for endurance athletes including an interesting one that you may not have heard of in the context of cycling…
The power of nitrates for cyclists and how you can get ‘em inside you.
How we can all embrace the power of placebo and finally – Will’s one super cheap, super undervalued super food that you need to start getting more of.
