YoPRO as a name sponsor

YoPRO Catalunya Bike Race is a stage race where the most important thing is daily pre-competition digestion and post-stage recovery to be able to face the daily stages in the best conditions. Riders will have to be prepared and arrive with the best possible adaptations that they will have obtained with a specific training and feeding of the previous months, a good body composition and with the necessary energy reserves of macro and micronutrients.

According to Anna Grifols, expert in sports nutrition, “after each training, dairy products like yogurts are great recuperators since they provide essential AARR in the proportions we need to recover our post-effort and post-stage muscles. Among other recuperators, we can opt for YoPRO, a Danone yogurt that provides a high protein content (25 g of protein in its drinkable version), provides 9 essential proteins, 0% of fat, without added sugars, without lactose and, made with ingredients of natural origin.
