“Team SD Worx takes a hands-on, individual approach to developing each rider’s skillset and build them into the best athlete they can be. At Supersapiens, we recognize that each athlete’s needs are unique,” said Southerland. “With the Supersapiens system and the power of real-time glucose visibility, Team SD Worx will be able to provide their athletes with innovative insights around fueling and nutrition to help unlock stronger performance and faster recovery.”
Supersapiens, powered by Abbott’s Libre Sense Glucose Sport Biosensor, helps athletes optimize the timing and amount of carbohydrate intake to maximize the stability of their glucose levels, promoting metabolic efficiency and sustained energy.
Because optimal fueling is different for everyone, and glucose levels are affected not only by food, but also by things like stress and excitement or altitude, effective energy management is nearly impossible without real-time glucose visibility. With Supersapiens, Team SD Worx athletes can better understand their body’s fueling requirements on a personal level and discover the most stable and sustainable fuel sources, and the optimal timing and amount of fuel, for their individual needs. Outside of competition, glucose management can help these athletes improve recovery and sleep.
