Michael Coughlan, Business Development Manager for CNP Professional said:
"We have found that the awareness of CNP Professional within the cycling market has increased dramatically this year, which is in no small part due to the work being done by Sarah and Barney. As we are the official sports supplement supplier to Team Sky, it makes sense that when looking to extend our team of ambassadors, we look within the team. We are delighted that both Geraint and Ben have accepted this responsibility and look forward to working with them both throughout the year. We have certainly got an impressive team together, who all work hard and appreciate the need for the right nutrition as they achieve their goals."
Geraint added: "I am delighted to take on this role as ambassador for CNP Professional. As a professional athlete, it is vital that we fuel ourselves with the right products. CNP Professional have a range of products that we can trust, and provide a complete package. It will be good to talk to fellow cyclists at all levels about how I have benefited from using CNP Professional products."
Ben Swift said: "What a year! I've had such a great year with my team and I am delighted to be competing in the Tour de France. I realise just how much using CNP supplements have helped me during this busy period, and I am therefore delighted to take on this role. Nutrition is really important for a cyclist, particularly recovery, and without doubt the products supplied by CNP are the best around.
The two riders are part of the nine-man team that Team Sky are sending to the 98th edition of the Tour de France, starting on 2 July at the Passage du Gois.
