“Since the very beginning we have looked to employ ‘best in class’ nutrition practices. To be able to do this we have to offer our riders the best vitamins and supplements available and that is why we have chosen to work with Healthspan Elite. Their quality is unparalleled and we look forward to working closely with them in exploring innovative new products for the riders.”

— Dr James Morton – Team Sky Performance Nutritionist

Team Sky is a British professional cycling team competing in the UCI World Tour. It was created in 2009 by current manager Sir Dave Brailsford, in association with Sky - Europe’s leading entertainment company - both inspired by cycling’s blossoming popularity in the UK since the Tour de France started there in 2007. The team’s initial aim was ‘to win the Tour de France within five years, to do it clean and with a British rider’. Team Sky achieved this within three years with Sir Bradley Wiggins becoming the first ever British rider to win the Tour de France in 2012 and Chris Froome taking a second Tour de France win for the team a year later.

Some of Team Sky’s highlights of the last five years:

  • Team Sky has had 168 wins in five years (including 19 Grand Tour stage wins)
  • Team Sky has won the Tour de France three times with two different British riders
  • Team Sky has had podium finishes at all three Grand Tours
  • In association with Sky and British Cycling, Team Sky has helped inspire over1.5 million more people in the UK to get on their bikes and ride regularly

On the new partnership, Chris Fisher, Head of Healthspan Elite commented; “Team Sky’s commitment to marginal gains, and to winning clean make them the ideal partner for Healthspan Elite. Having the opportunity to work closely with the nutritionists at Team Sky and with a team that leave no stone un-turned when looking for ways to improve performance is extremely exciting"

Team Sky Performance Nutritionist Dr James Morton continued “Since the very beginning we have looked to employ ‘best in class’ nutrition practices.
