Gatorade to Power the MX Nationals

Great news for the MX Nationals and the two hundred and forty riders attending the eight rounds – keeping hydrated has just become a lot easier!

The MX Nationals has become an official Gatorade supplier this year, which unlocks G-Force support across all eight rounds of the championship! This will be a real help for the riders, as the G-Series is the ultimate three-stage performance nutrition, which means that you and your body will have support before, during and after each race.

The great thing for the riders is that this is not a gimmick – it is pure science. Gatorade has their own state of the art sports science institute (GSSI) and access to the most advanced sports facilities in the world; they are also committed to remaining a Global leader in sports nutrition having been founded in sport nearly 50years ago.

At every MX Nationals round you can expect the following support from Gatorade:

  • There will be a ‘Hydration Station’ for all of the riders.
  • All spectators will be able to sample the products, and receive education from GFORCE.
  • There will be Gatorade holeshot prizes for the pro class at all eight rounds of the series.
  • The 2014 Clubman champion will receive Gatorade product and science support for 2015.

At the MX Nationals, we needed the right partners to work with and grow the series. The fact that Gatorade is preservative free, and healthier for the riders to consume, makes it a perfect fit.

The winner of the Clubman championship is really in for a treat, courtesy of Gatorade. He will be taken to Loughborough University to undergo a fitness test and train at one of the best facilities in the UK. Maybe he will be ready to step up into the ‘Fastest 40’ in 2015?

Paul Irwin (MX Nationals Director): “It is great to have the full support of Gatorade behind the MX Nationals! We genuinely believe in the product, as it’s not only tried and tested, but Gatorade is constantly looking to improve and enter new sports like motocross, as well! For us, having Gatorade there to help educate the riders about what drinks and nutrition they should be taking before, during and after the races will help the riders excel further, which is great for the sport

The lengths that the Gatorade team take to ensure that the athletes understand the benefits, and are able to try the drinks for themselves through the hydration stations, is something that motocross has never had. Everyone at the MX Nationals is very excited to see the impact Gatorade can make on the sport!”
