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.

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.

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. LactiGo is a formulation of menthol, carnosine, and magnesium. I know is 100% safe, and banned substance tested by Informed Sport. 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.

LactiGo goes on clear, and dries in under a minute. It leaves no sticky residue either, meaning it's great for recovery after rides.

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.
