Medichecks mission is to make state-of-the-art laboratory blood testing available to everyone. We’ve harnessed the expertise of the UK’s top pathology laboratories with the latest consumer technology to make 21st Century blood testing a simple, easy-to-use process available for everybody. Medichecks has blood testing profiles aimed at sports men and women, whatever level. The riders from the Ribble Pro Cycling will take the Medichecks Endurance Fit blood test at varying stages throughout the season. Medichecks doctors will interpret their results looking for biomarkers which might be affecting their health and/or performance.
Ribble Pro Cycling said on the agreement “When Medichecks approached us it immediately felt like a great fit. Typically as cyclists we are obsessed with tiny gains in training and equipment but frequently overlook other elements of our own health and performance. The blood testing that the riders will undertake throughout the season through Medichecks will provide them much greater insight into their own bodies and allow them to be adaptable and make positive changes to training and nutrition throughout the season to maximise their performance. Medichecks have such a easy and streamlined process, we will have the results for all riders within a couple of days and can immediately action any changes or recommendations.”
Helen Marsden, Co-founder at Medichecks said “We’re delighted to be working with such a high profile team as Ribble Pro Cycling. The sports performance blood testing market is growing rapidly as people seek to get even deeper insights into their training and nutrition. With the rapid growth in the popularity of cycling in the UK, we feel that this is a perfect opportunity for us to promote a service that can help athletes of every level improve their results. We are confident that the insights provided by our testing programme will have a positive impact on the performance of the team and we will be cheering them on from the sidelines over the course of the 2019 season.”
