Allen Lim: Sports Nutrition and Marginal Gains

Allen Lim is best known for his Skratch drink mix. It has hydrated countless riders and been in the bottles of top cyclists around the world. But the road to becoming one of the most well-known people in sports nutrition was crooked and bumpy. Allen tells Josh how the Secret Drink mix almost never made it. How he used the ideas of compassion and caring to steer athletes away from doping. And how his use of a rice cooker was turned against him in an ugly way.

One thought on “Allen Lim: Sports Nutrition and Marginal Gains

  1. This is a fascinating, resonant, and provocatively controversial episode.

    I still credit things to the Cycling Merit Badge. And I completely grok doubling down on rice cookers.

    I enjoyed it.
