Bonk Breaker® to make the tough Tour of Utah a delicious and nutritious ride
The sports nutrition maker is the official energy and protein bar of “America’s Toughest Stage Race”
Santa Monica, California (8 June 2015): A tough ride just got a lot tastier. To keep the men’s and women’s professional pelotons fueled with nutritious energy to race at altitude through the majestic mountains of Utah and jump start post-race recovery with protein at the 2015 Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah, Bonk Breaker® will provide the official energy and protein bars at neutral “Fuel Up” stations at the event billed as “America’s Toughest Stage Race” being held August 3-9, 2015 for the world-class men’s peloton and August 3-4 at the omnium-style Tour of Utah Women’s Edition.
The official nutrition bar of USA Cycling, Bonk Breaker®, the freshly-baked gluten-free bars made in ten delicious energy bar flavors and four tasty protein bar flavors using all-natural real food ingredients, continues to expand its footprint in cycling by returning to the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah where it was the official nutrition bar of the 2013 edition. Bonk Breaker®, which earlier this year introduced two flavors of energy chews, Strawberry with caffeine and Orange Tangerine, that provide an all-important quick burst of energy to keep you going or to help you finish strong, is the official nutrition bar of UCI WorldTour team Cannondale-Garmin Pro Cycling and the Hincapie Racing Team, two of the thirteen men’s squads invited to compete in the longest of the three 2.HC stage races held in the United States. Upgraded in 2015 to the 2.HC status by the UCI, the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah will cross into Idaho for the first time during the 712-mile trek that will test riders with over 51,000 feet of climbing.
“The Tour of Utah is one of the premier cycling events held on American roads and is a perfect fit for Bonk Breaker®. We’re proud to be the official nutrition bar and to fuel all the elite riders. We are confident that this partnership (with the race) will once again be a sensational success. As die-hard cycling fans, we’re excited to fuel some tremendous competition,” said Chris Frank, Chairman & Co-CEO of Bonk Breaker®, which will also make the energy chews available to the riders at the Fuel Up stations.
“We appreciate the continued support from Bonk Breaker® as our official energy bar at the Tour of Utah. Our professional cycling event has grown in prominence as a seven-day, UCI stage race for men, and a USA Cycling NCC multi-day event for women. Having quality nutritional products for our athletes and staff is important, as well as a solid partnership with a national brand like Bonk Breaker®,” said Jenn Andrs, executive director of the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah.
Bonk Breaker®’s wholesome energy and protein bars fuel professional athletes, Olympians and weekend warriors across the sports spectrum and also serves as a nourishing snack choice for adults and children on the go.
