“Coming from the North West of England where there’s more rainfall than anywhere else in the UK, training in the most extreme of conditions, whether it’s the cross winds of Winter Hill or further afield in the blistering heat of Mount Teide, I needed a range of quality, trustworthy and dependable products, that worked wherever and whenever.” Obsessive and accident prone by his own admission, Tim’s had more than his fair share of spectacular spills which have kept him requiring regular sports therapy to keep him on his trusty steed.

“Having read the lengthy and often scary ingredients list on a variety of labels, it was clear there was scope to create better formulas and work towards a fully, ‘informed sport’ brand. Made for athletes, by athletes.”

Produced with a clear purpose to look after your personal care and nutrition, drilled down to the fundamental need of each of these products and using appropriate technology to provide effective race day solutions, prioritising the health and performance of the athlete. Developed and tested with high speed track cyclists, in the mud of the world cup cyclo-cross circuit and on endurance rides, Secret Training was born.

Tom Timothy, Team Principal, added “Across the board our objective is to work with the best and most forward thinking brands on the market. It’s clear that Secret Training fit into that category. We’ve appreciated Secret Training’s support throughout 2018 and as our riders continue to challenge a diverse range of events, it’s great to have a nutrition supplier that caters for all our needs.”

I've seen how the team is able to perform on the biggest domestic stages as well as internationally so I knew there would be space for me to continue my ambitions while helping represent Ribble. It's a really exciting project and I can't wait to get stuck in, start racing and help the team grow!

We're looking to build further on our national titles and our position as number 1 ranked team in the UK in 2017 and Gruff will be a key part of this. It was clear from speaking to Gruff he is an incredibly passionate and motivated athlete and will be an invaluable asset to the team.
