Canyon Eisberg have struck a deal with Leeds-based sports nutrition company OTE for the 2018 campaign.
And sports director Tim Elverson reckons they have all the ingredients to fuel his troops for what promises to be a hectic campaign at home and abroad.
Discussing the partnership ahead of the team presentation at the Canyon Experience Weekend on Saturday, Elverson said:
“We were looking for a nutrition partner who could provide a full range of products that deliver performance but also taste great and are kind on the stomach.
“The lads will spend a lot of time using it with our busy calendar, so it is crucial they get on with it.
“OTE was my first choice but as we were late to the party, I didn’t think we would be able to hatch a deal.
“So I was so relieved and delighted when Matt (Harrison) was excited at the prospect of working with us.
“OTE was founded on the belief ‘Goodness In = Greatness Out’, a belief shared by Canyon Eisberg.”
And the Canyon Eisberg riders are looking forward to getting stuck into the range as the season gets into full swing, too. Harry Tanfield said:
“I’m very excited about using OTE nutrition this season. I’ve used a number of their products before, which I’ve really enjoyed, so I’m looking forward to trying the full range.
“It is great to have OTE in our corner. Nutrition is so important to us and they really know their stuff.”
With products developed by experienced sports nutritionists and honed by athletes, OTE currently fuel World Tour outfit EF Education First-Drapac p/b Cannondale and women’s UCI team Trek-Drops.
And having used their range with the latter, Canyon Eisberg soigneur Jodie Lloyd knows Elverson’s squad are in safe hands. She said:
“From a swanny’s point of view, OTE have a full range of products for before, during and after both training and racing.
“They cater for all the riders’ dietary requirements, too, which is really important to ensure they are at their best.”
OTE’s multi-award winning energy gels, bars, pH neutral energy drinks and recovery drinks only use natural ingredients and are free from artificial sweeteners and colours.
