Sigma Sports have teamed up with Italian nutrition experts NamedSport for this week's amazing competition. We've got £1000 worth of energy supplements to give away to road.cc readers, and one lucky so-and-so will bag the first-place prize worth £500... there are also TEN further runner-up prizes, with each winner getting a hamper of NamedSport gels and bars worth £50!
If you've not heard of NamedSport, you've clearly not been watching the Grand Tours for the last few years! It's virtually impossible to miss the large orange inflatable water bottles and huge orange banners with NamedSport written all over them.
NamedSport, whose name comes from NAtural MEDicine, have been producing health food supplements for over 20 years, focussed on making sure their athletes can perform at the highest level. Just as well really, as they are sponsoring four Grand Tour teams, all with top contenders for a winner's jersey or two.
Let’s take a look at some of the products that you can choose from if you're lucky enough to win the top prize - don't forget you can choose whatever you like from the Sigma Sports website, meaning you can choose 324 energy bars if you love them, or perhaps 390 Sports Gel Caffeine shots if that's your thing! It really is up to you...
