What attracted SiS to Charm City CX? Why Cyclocross?
Cyclocross is one of the fastest growing cycling segments and one that requires a lot of energy to participate in, so nutrition plays a huge aspect in it. We have a number of teams and riders competing in Cyclocross events across the country, and after experiencing CX first hand during USA Cycling Cyclocross Nationals in Reno, Science In Sport felt that working together with one of the biggest races on the US calendar was an important part of continuing to grow our support of Cyclocross and its participants.
Two top tips on how to use SiS products in a cross race.
Ensuring that you’re properly fueled before you get to the start line is essential. Drinking our GO Electrolyte mix that’s filled with 36g of carbohydrates plus electrolytes leading up to the start will ensure that you’re properly hydrated and your energy stores are topped up. Consuming a GO Energy + Caffeine gel 10-15 minutes before the start will give you that extra boost to tackle the entire race.
What separates SiS from the large pack of sports nutrition producers?
Science In Sport’s product range is researched and developed by sport scientists in conjunction with international athletes, ensuring that all our products meet the exact standards of Informed Sport. Our world-famous Isotonic Energy Gels are carefully designed to digest quickly and easily without the need for additional water.

Bringing Belgium to You
Not everyone has the chance to go to Belgium to watch Cyclocross in its full glory, so we've brought a little bit of Belgian cyclocross to Baltimore.
Thomas has been an on-site announcer for multiple races in Belgium, including the Hansgrohe and Telenet Superprestige series and the Telenet World Cups. This year he's joined Corendon-Circus, Mathieu van der Poel's team as their Press Officer. The 2018 Charm City event will mark Thomas' third year as the announcer for the Men's and Women's Elite races.
"Charm City is one of the most exciting races I've ever done as announcer but also as a fan. The venue is great and I'm loving Druid Hill Park! The races are always exciting, often much more exciting than in Europe. I love the people at Charm City, and off course... the food! I never ever eat Pizza or Rice Bowls at a Cyclocross race, and I never eat so much vegan in one week as I do in Baltimore!" -Thomas
