My name is David Gobby. I race in long distance mountain bike events from 5 hour events up to 24 hours for a team called JMC, so I was looking for an energy source that that did not burn out on me after 30 minutes.
When I discovered Ollybars I knew had found a great tasting energy bar. It is full of natural ingredients and not just rammed full of sugar. The natural ingredients give me a constant realise of energy whilst replacing vital calories that I burn when racing. At such high intensity long distance cycling replacing calories is essential, so Olybars give me a huge advantage.
I also work as a builder so I have a very physically active job and after a long day at work I sometimes find myself low in energy. It's hard to motivate myself to train at nights after work but Ollybars and a cup of coffee give me the energy I need to go on and train to prepare myself for racing.
I have three races coming up at the end of April and a couple at the beginning of May before my main race season starts on the 26th of May with the glentress7. I am looking to get a good result at glentress. I then have a few races over the summer months before I go to the world championships in October which i am really looking forward to.
