The 5 times Tour de France and 2017 Vuelta Espana winners will continue to work with SiS and its team of sports nutrition experts, to create bespoke products and provide support and advice to fuel their world-class athletes including Chris Froome, Geraint Thomas and Michal Kwiatkowski.

Team Sky is one of our key relationships and we enjoy collaborating closely with them to deliver performance improvements through our industry leading science and new product team. We are looking forward to another three years working with Team Sky, supporting their world-class racing programme and in turn seeing products developed with them filter down to our whole customer base."

 

David Brailsford, Team Principal for Team Sky, commented:

 

"Nutrition and fuelling are key factors in our success. Getting these elements right is absolutely crucial to enabling Team Sky riders to perform at their best - both in training and on race day. As a team, it is an area we place importance on - not just with the nutritional support provided to riders, but also in terms of innovation, research and rider education. We seek to be supported by the best. Science in Sport understand and share our commitment to continuous improvement, and that makes them a key partner of Team Sky and we're looking forward to achieving more with them over the next 3 years"
