CARSON CITY, Nev. (Dec. 12, 2019) – Athletic Greens, the ultimate daily all-in-one supplement, announces its partnership with USA Cycling for the upcoming 2020/2021 season. Athletic Greens recently earned certification from NSF International’s Certified for Sport® program, making the brand eligible to sponsor professional sports teams and elite athletics by ensuring high quality and transparency in its manufacturing process and ingredients. USA Cycling is Athletic Greens’ first national sports partnership and a monumental step for the brand as they remain a premium choice for those seeking to feel and perform at their best.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Athletic Greens into the professional cycling community,” said Rob DeMartini, CEO of USA Cycling. “Success at the highest level of our sport typically comes down to marginal gains an athlete can make. Therefore, being able to support our athletes with Athletic Greens has the potential to make these gains a reality. The peace of mind that comes from knowing these riders will be supported throughout their training, no matter their nutritional needs, is immeasurable.”
Athletic Greens supports athlete health with 75 vitamins, minerals and whole food-sourced ingredients that work together to help the body absorb and synthesize these nutrients in a highly bioavailable form. Developed specifically for athletes and high performers, Athletic Greens gives these individuals access to comprehensive nutrition and key micronutrients to support their normal training routines or their demanding travel schedule. Athletic Greens is proud to be the first-ever supplement sponsor of USA Cycling.
“We are incredibly excited to partner with the USA Cycling team and help this great nation’s best perform at their highest level,” said Chris Ashenden, Athletic Greens founder. “As a team, we are proud that USA Cycling has not only recognized the quality and efficacy of our products in assisting their top athletes, but also our shared commitment to helping to inspire the wider community to live healthier and more active lives.”
As part of the sponsorship, Athletic Greens will be the title sponsor of the Pro Road Nationals this spring and will activate at other National Championship events throughout the year. Additionally, the USA Cycling National Team will ride in Athletic Greens branded jerseys in all international competitions and next month will announce USA Cycling team athletes as Athletic Green ambassadors.
