Hexis was created with the insight that every athlete is unique and so is their path to peak performance. At the Elite Cycling Nutrition Conference participants will have the unique opportunity to discover cutting-edge research and evidence-based practices that are transforming cycling nutrition. The conference will feature presentations and discussions on the latest advancements in the field, offering attendees invaluable insights into the optimisation of performance and recovery for elite cyclists.

In addition to the educational aspects, the conference is designed to foster connections among industry leaders and fellow professionals within the cycling community. Attendees will have the chance to network with peers, exchange ideas, and build relationships that can lead to future collaborations. The event aims to provide a platform for expanding personal and professional networks, enhancing the collective knowledge and expertise of those involved in cycling nutrition.

This exclusive event is tailored for sports nutritionists, performance chefs, cycling coaches, dietitians, and athletic trainers. It offers a rare opportunity to engage with experts and practitioners who share a commitment to advancing the field of sports nutrition. By attending, participants will gain practical strategies to apply in their work, ultimately benefiting the athletes they support.

Professional cyclist Bob Jungels of UCI WorldTeam Bora–Hansgrohe is a long term advocate and user of Hexis, and will be competing in the 2024 edition of the Tour de France.

Bob says: “I have been working closely with the Hexis team for some time now, and their expertise in nutrition has been instrumental in my training and performance. The upcoming Elite Cycling Nutrition Conference is a superb opportunity for professionals to gain insights from the best in the field. The level of knowledge and innovation that Hexis brings to the table is unmatched, and I have no doubt that this event will be incredibly valuable for everyone attending.”

Dr Samuel Impey, co-founder of Hexis, and former lead nutritionist at British Cycling also shared his excitement about the conference as he says: “We saw a fantastic opportunity to bring together the community of nutritionists, coaches, and performance chefs who support the elite athletes riding the Tour de France. Having worked on three TdFs, I’ve lived the challenge of providing nutrition support to each athlete, and it highlighted how unique every athlete is. We wanted to create an opportunity to share the latest nutrition research and technical developments, and to provide a platform for expanding personal and professional networks. We have some fantastic speakers lined up, and the value of the experience in the room will be incredible—that’s what we’re really excited about!”
