Here at Roctane.com we exist to create sports nutrition products that improve performances, that help you push your physical limits so you can achieve better results. To better educate and inform our users on how to properly fuel for training and racing we will be conducting two live expert Q&A events at Interbike 2012. Join Chris Carmichael, Rebecca Rusch and Brian Vaughan, moderated by Yuri Hauswald, for two live Q&A sessions to talk about training and racing insights, and the importance of sports nutrition. Hear about the evolution of performance in endurance sports – from power-based training approaches to nutrition strategies. Chris and Rebecca will pull from their own experiences during this interactive conversation to bring context and meaning to the topics. Learn key tips and techniques that you can use immediately, and what it will take to conquer your bucket list. The panel discussions will be taking place in the GU booth, #7073, from 3 to 4 p.m. PST on Wednesday, Sept. 19th and Thursday, Sept. 20th.
