- Colorado Kitchen Confidential
Bike racing at the professional level is hard, especially when the race takes place in Colorado, involves seven consecutive stages, thousands of feet of climbing, and never once goes below 5000 feet in elevation. Well, that’s exactly what’s in store for the Garmin-Sharp Pro Cycling team this week as they tackle the USA Pro Challenge, arguably the biggest race in the country.
So, how does a pro team keep their reserves topped off and ensure that the riders are getting the absolute best nutrition for their bodies each day? Well, we know that the Garmin-Sharp riders eat plenty of Clif and Shot goods while they’re on the bike, but when it comes to their evening meals, they leave nothing to chance, bringing along their mobile team kitchen every step of the way. Chris and Barb Grealish, the team chefs, prepare a varied, organic, and tasty meal every night. But, the meals go way beyond tasting great - they contain many ingredients that are specifically included to nourish bodies that are being put through the ringer daily at an almost indescribable level.
