Recent studies have shown that beet juice can actually improve economy, or gross mechanical efficiency, meaning more power is being produced for a given amount of oxygen consumed or energy burned. The ability to produce more power without using more energy can have huge ramifications over a day of hard racing or several hard days of racing. And for this to occur with a simple glass of beet juice a day is pretty amazing.
This is undeniably one of the best spots for birds to watch the action on the Pacific Coast Highway along the Gran+ routes of Levi's GranFondo. We've seen a few photographers over the years scramble up this hillside as well, as evidence by this birds-eye view looking south. Photo: Darrell Parks, 2013.
Here's a throwback to 2009 when everything we did was brand new. Riders sail through a trough in the road at the spine of King Ridge. This is around mile 45 of the Gran route. Photo: Carson Blume
I ate oatmeal for breakfast nearly every day for over 20 years during my cycling career. Along the way I met Biju and he taught me his recipe. The oatmeal I was eating before Biju didn't compare to the oatmeal I ate after Biju. Biju's Oatmeal is not only mouth wateringly delicious but it's enormously more nutritious and my training and racing clearly benefited from it. ~Levi
