"My First Category Road Race Licence arrived in the post this morning," said Tim Lawson.
"After deciding that I’d just got too fat and wasn’t a good ambassador for a sports nutrition company, I trained pretty hard over the winter and started racing as a Fourth category racer at the beginning of the year. It’s pretty rare to go through all the categories in one year, especially for an old fat 'un like me – but it does show what can be done with training and good nutrition."
And what SIS products has Lawson been scoffing?
Rego Rapid Recovery and Rego Nocte, the night-time formulation.
This is Science in Sport's new range of protein products based around what the firm calls "a new protein kinetics model."
