The Movistar Team, a team from which INNOLIVA is the official supplier, keeps EVOO as a fundamental element in their daily diet.
Madrid, August 18, 2017.
After the Tour de France, it is the turn of the most important race at national level: the Vuelta a España. It starts tomorrow, August 19, and ends on September 10. It will have a route of around 3,297.7 kilometers divided into 21 stages. INNOLIVA, as the official supplier of the Movistar Team, relies on the team to face this challenge.
It will be the 38th uninterrupted presence of the Navarrese team in this competition since its creation in 1980. This year the team of Eusebio Unzué has bet on the youth, freshness and impetus of a group of cyclists where the average age is 27.2 years , well below previous editions. From the Navarre training they want to improve the second position by teams acquired in La Vuelta last year.
In a sport such as cycling, where the demand is very high and the routes are very long, feeding the runners is vital. Support the high temperatures and the great efforts that they have to face during the stages are complicated, so the daily diet they must follow is very specific.
From Movistar Team ensure that all the team follows a healthy diet with high energy content due to the expense of each stage. It is a diet high in fats and carbohydrates. It also highlights the importance acquired by the EVOO, which has managed to establish itself as a key product in the diet of elite athletes. Its power as a natural anti-inflammatory, as well as the protection it carries out against the oxidative stress produced after exercise make it an indispensable piece in the diet of runners.
For this reason, INNOLIVA supplies its best EVOO to the Movistar Team and relies on the high performance of the team to face the challenge of this race.
The company, which has its head office in Pamplona (Spain), owns more than 5,000 hectares of irrigated olive groves, located in Spain and Portugal, where the Mediterranean climate gives the olive tree the ideal environment for the development and maturation of the fruit; and it favors the obtaining of Extra Virgin Olive Oils with excellent sensory qualities.
With its production system, they guarantee the integral traceability of the entire process: from the olive tree to the final customer.
They make their Extra Virgin Olive Oil cold in the shortest time possible from the entrance of the olive in the oil mill. And they take care of the oil already produced to maintain their excellent sensory and healthy qualities as long as possible.
