Supersapiens DQ for Pro Athlete

March 17, 2023

The UCI has disqualified a pro cyclist for using a Supersapiens sensor during the Strade Bianche two weeks ago. She finished 3rd. For those not familiar, Supersapiens is a continuous glucose monitor system, which lets athletes see their glucose levels in almost real-time (there’s some slight delay because it’s measuring interstitial fluid). While glucose monitoring has been common for many years for diabetics, Supersapiens is trying to bridge the gap to athletes for nutrition monitoring. The idea being you can see the bonk before it happens, and/or figure out fueling during training. DC Rainmaker
