In 2016, Emily Chappell was the first woman across the line in the Transcontinental Race, covering some 4000km and 50,000m of climbing in 13 days, 10 hours and 28 minutes. It was only the second time the former bike courier had entered, her first endeavour ending in hospital after she was forced to retire with chest pains. Since then all manner of big ride challenges have ensued, with Emily co-founding the Adventure Syndicate along the way, an organisation that encourages women to take on challenging rides. Last summer she once again rode ahead of the Tour de France as part of Le Loop, but upon returning to the UK after another mammoth few months riding around the globe, she found she was suffering from post-Covid, post-viral fatigue. Here she tells James and Anthony about her adventures, her relationship to the cycling and how she's bouncing back to fitness.

We hear a lot about ketones in the pro peloton, but what are they?

According to the experts H.V.M.N, ketones are a natural source of fuel for your body. When stored carbs are depleted, your body starts to convert fat into ketones. Studies show that ketones are 28% more efficient than glucose, making them a super-efficient fuel source for the brain and the body.

These benefits led H.V.M.N to create Ketone-IQ: a drinkable ketone designed to support energy, focus and endurance.

Developed alongside the U.S. military, Ketone-IQ is one of the most powerful ketone supplements on the market. It’s designed to elevate your ketone levels for up to 4 hours – much longer than other products. Plus, it’s vegan, caffeine free, and compliant with the World Anti-Doping Agency’s guidelines. That’s a major win for athletes.

Ketone-IQ Shots are the best way to get your ketones on the go. They’re portable, convenient, and fit perfectly in your pocket during a ride or a race.
