Meet Tyler Pearce a 30-year-old cat-2 road cyclist in NCNCA and also a working family man. Pearce started cycling as a cross-training activity for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu back in 2010 but it quickly took over his life as he fell deeper into the crazy sport of cycling. As for being vegan, it has been a ten-year journey into health. Tyler was eating fast food three times a day, every day. With a family of four also all plant-based, it has its challenges. Knowing they are getting the right nutrients and enough of them.

“SP2 has been great. It’s such an easy way to know my family and I are getting the essential vitamins and minerals needed. We add 1-2 SP2 cubes into our morning smoothie along with fruits, veggies and a splash of orange juice. It tastes amazing, the algae doesn’t change the taste at all!”

 

As a vegan elite cyclist, Pearce needs to ensure he has the fuel to train and race at the top level. Since using SP2 Life every morning, he has set his best 7-minute power of 400 watts. Previously he could only hold 400 watts for 5-minutes. A whole extra 2-minutes of power!

“I filmed the effort actually! Plus on the day I set this PR I snagged a few other KOMS on the way to my PR. It almost feels like SP2 keeps me with ‘good legs’ all the time. It's a game changer for my family and I, 5 stars!”

Check out the latest video Tyler sent over, with an insane climb pushing a max pitch of 20%! Tyler managed 400 watts for 7 minute which is his all-time best, and he did it weighing in at 157 pounds.
