Why a former professional cyclist who HATES performance-enhancing drugs uses LactiGo

Cycling is rewarding, exciting, and my favorite way to spend a day. It also hurts. A lot sometimes. You can’t have one without the other, and that’s what makes LactiGo so special.

We all know pounding away on a bike is hard on the body. The hills, wind, the weather -- all with potentially big rewards waiting at the finish line -- have led many elite cyclists throughout the years to explore the evils of various performance-enhancing drugs. The moment of victory is a great feeling, but I always knew that cheating would kill that emotion, so I never took those shortcuts. I appreciated the process of hard work, knowing that the results were earned, and the wins --although rare-- were real.

The Processes

Apply LactiGo

1. Prepare

First, apply LactiGo liberally to your desired muscles 30-45 minutes before athletic activity.

Powerful menthol

2. Perform

LactiGo’s powerful menthol, carnosine, and magnesium formulation immediately start going to work.

Another coat of LactiGo

3. Recover

As your athletic activity comes to an end, apply another coat of LactiGo on your desired muscles.

Reduce downtime

4. Go Again

As you rest, LactiGo continues to reduce muscle soreness, significantly reducing your downtime!

Retired, but better than ever

Those who follow my YouTube channel Worst Retirement Ever are aware that I’m not very good at retiring -- still riding and suffering every day, specializing in my training and equipment with a focus on climbing hills, often improving on times I did when I was a pro.

LactiGo is one of the tools that’s been a big help in this mission.

I’m always skeptical, but I tried it before I went to reclaim the record time on Mandeville Canyon, a heavily-contested climb in Los Angeles where the fastest time had gone back and forth between me and a number of pros. I’d emptied myself on Mandeville many times over the years, but I improved by twenty seconds that day, taking the record by eleven seconds from a world-class French rider who came through town, beat my time, and talked mad trash on the internet. It was a victory, it was justice, it felt great, and I became a religious LactiGo user.

Phil Gaimon putting on LactiGo

LactiGo is topical, meaning it just goes on the skin like a lotion. It rubs on clear, doesn’t feel greasy, and the menthol adds a pleasant smell. Most importantly, an important ingredient is Carnosine, which is something I used to supplement, and I know is 100% safe and is NOT an illegal, banned performance-enhancing substance. After applying LactiGo, you need about 30 to 45 minutes to let it fully absorb before you ride or workout. Then after you’re done showering, put it on again for a little extra recovery boost.

I’m retired, so I don’t have a team picking my sponsors. I get to choose who I work with and I only use what I like. Give LactiGo a try and I bet you’ll beat your PRs, too.
