Atlanta – 06 February 2024 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Supersapiens, the world’s first glucose management system designed for athletes, proudly introduces its latest ambassador, American Magnus Sheffield. In collaboration with Supersapiens, Sheffield seamlessly blends his passion for cycling with an innate curiosity about the science of performance.
Phil Southerland, Supersapiens CEO and Founder, expresses his excitement, “In our quest to partner with athletes who don’t just push boundaries in their sport but also understand the value of fueling for training, racing, and recovery, Magnus stood out. His commitment to spreading the knowledge about physiology to a broader audience parallels our vision to help any and every athlete reach their potential.”
Sheffield’s interest in Supersapiens emerged from an early encounter with continuous glucose monitors (CGM). Intrigued by its potential, he soon discovered how central glucose is to energy levels. This eventually led him to Supersapiens and that knowledge transformed his approach to fueling both on and off the bike.
“Supersapiens empowers my journey as an athlete, allowing a deeper dive into the subtle nuances of my body’s response to fuel, ensuring that I am optimal when I get on the bike,” explains Sheffield. “Fueling isn’t just about what we put into our bodies; it’s about understanding the ‘when’ and the ‘how’. With Supersapiens, I’ve gained an unprecedented insight into the rhythm of my body, reinforcing that precision in fueling is as vital as the training itself.”
Thanks to Supersapiens’ rich data analytics, Sheffield has finessed his fueling strategy, especially during training sessions and race days. Prioritizing consistency and timing, he works closely with team nutritionists, creating plans that closely resemble race conditions, ensuring his body is at its peak performance every time.
“Beyond the athletic aspect of the Supersapiens partnership, I’m equally passionate to help share the essence of a healthy lifestyle and intricate understanding of one’s body to the wider public, which I believe is paramount,” Sheffield emphasizes.
Despite only two seasons at the World Tour level, Sheffield has already notched impressive accolades including being the first American and second-youngest rider to win the Belgian classic Brabantse Pijl (2022), and podium finishes at Tirreno-Adriatico, Tour of Norway, Tour of Denmark, Tour of Poland, and Tour Down Under. Recently he won the overall Youth Classification at the Tour of Britain. Beyond the bike, Sheffield is an adventurer at heart. From his early days ski racing to trekking in the mountains, he’s always on the move. Armed with a camera, he enjoys capturing and sharing moments from his travels with family and friends.
“Magnus is truly a remarkable individual whose passion for cycling and dedication to excellence makes me optimistic about inspiring a fresh wave of cyclists in the US. As we envision a lasting partnership with Magnus, we’re excited about the prospect of changing the world through sport together,” concludes Southerland.
