The latest is with Greg Cowan, CEO of F2C Nutrition

“We’re science driven”

Greg dives deep into his findings about mistakes people make in the days leading up to the race, Glyco-Durance on the Barrelman course, and the F2C gel launch coming to market this year.

The three previous interviews can be found at Barrelman TV.

Sportstats Timing App – Download for iOS or Android

Speaking of tracking here is a bit more information on the Sportstats Timing App where  your loved ones can see how you are doing during the race. The APP is very intuitive with some very cool features. Once the race start athlete info will pop up on the map and when they hit a timing mat they will move at the same speed going forward. This includes predicting their time at the next timing mat. For our non-metric U.S. athletes you can view the distances in kilometres, miles or both.
