Bike riders love ‘new’ – new bikes, new kit and new products. But sometimes we find a product that we like, that works for us, and we don’t really want to change things up, especially when it comes to personal aspects such as hydration.Asked to review another new hydration product not so long after I spent a month drinking a brand that I liked enough to take it to France on a recent trip for Bicycling Australia, I wondered…really? Can there be anything better than this? What could be different about PREPD? Then I spent some time chatting with Nathan Hocking and his team and learnt a thing or two about this new product. Namely, it isn’t a hydration drink, but actually a hydration enhancer. So that idea is very new. It meant I didn’t have to quit drinking the product I had decided was ‘my’ hydration drink. I could still have it, but add PREPD to my before and after exercise regime.The theory was that PREPD, which tastes like a very nice fruit smoothie (the mango and passionfruit Prime is taken six to 12 hours before training or racing while the equally as flavoursome strawberry and kiwi Recover is taken straight afterwards) works with other forms of hydration in my body (including...

Livestreaming platform and Amazon subsidiary Twitch is hosting a live shopping show for its “favorite made-up holiday,” Prime Day, on its Twitch Presents channel, which it said “promises to be unlike anything you’ve ever witnessed…but, like, in a good way.” The two-day program, Twitch Sells Out, will stream two 12-hour broadcasts each day from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. PT. It will be hosted by “(almost all of) our biggest streamers,” who will feature deals on gaming, electronics, kitchenware and related products—and who Twitch claimed are now “locked in a windowless room watching an almost unhealthy amount of infomercials to get ready.” “We’ve gone through every single item on sale for Prime Day and curated the best of the best for the Twitch community,” Twitch said in a blog post. A spokesperson said Twitch had no numbers to share. Content will also include “previously unseen demos and gameplay from some of the most anticipated video game releases of the year.” And the platform will even “shine the spotlight on some of Prime Day’s more…unusual items for sale,” the blog post read, teasing, “You’ll just have to tune in to see what we mean.” Customers will be able to buy directly from t...

(Photo By Stephen McCarthy/Sportsfile via Getty Images) If Anthony Joshua looks like he doesn’t have a care in the world right now, well, it’s because he doesn’t. On Saturday, June 1, he will attempt to defend his WBO, WBA and IBF heavyweight world titles against challenger Andy Ruiz. Joshua, the massive favorite is fighting Ruiz, who is a replacement for the original challenger, Jarrell Miller. Ruiz took this fight on relatively short notice for a fight of this magnitude after Miller tested positive for banned substances. Joshua, the undefeated heavyweight champion has a perfect record of 22-0 (21KOs). Ruiz’s only blemish was in 2016 when he lost a majority decision to Joseph Parker for the vacant WBO heavyweight title in Parker’s native land of New Zealand. Since then Ruiz 31-1 (21KOs) has won three fights while waiting to get another shot at the world title. Andy Ruiz might look like the guy next door, not the one that goes to the gym. The other one, that looks like he plays a lo...
