The big day is fast approaching, the Jensie Gran Fondo in picturesque Marin County, a stone’s throw across the Golden Gate. Traversing the multiple slopes of Mt. Tamalpais and her watershed, the day is world class cycling at its finest.


A proper way to get ready for any event of this stature and challenge is through preparation. We all know that preparation takes time; often times the hours in the saddle are the first to go when life turns into a time crunch.


There is no substitution for hard work and time in the saddle. Luckily, there is a way to get more out of your training with our newest partner, Topical Edge. The ability to train harder and recover faster is so important for all athletes, but especially for the time-crunched athlete who is always struggling to get more difficult, frequent blocks of intensity to build strength for rides like the Jensie Gran Fondo on October 7th.


When you’re looking to get a little more from your training or when preparations don’t come to fruition, there is now Topical Edge! Topical Edge is the first and only sports lotion that is clinically proven to help you train harder and recover faster with less muscle soreness. Buffering your muscles is now as simple as applying a sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) lotion to your legs before you workout. It’s safe, easy to use, and easy to cleanup.


Training with Topical Edge will make your workouts better and allow you to recover from them faster. Better training with Topical Edge will allow you to see bigger gains in your fitness and strength.


An independent study performed at San Diego State University (read study HERE) recently reported finding some outstanding benefits for athletes looking to push their training to new heights, regardless of fitness level. The largest single discovery is the reduction in delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), more commonly known as the pain and stiffness felt in your muscles days after a hard training session. You will be able to feel better in the days after training to get back on the bike or just go about your life. In addition, another compelling benefit of this sodium bicarbonate sports lotion is around the exertion of an athlete. The study showed a lower heart rate among athletes using Topical Edge immediately following a 5 minute time trial, in addition to a lower HR and perceived exertion at the 15 minute mark of a 1 hour time trial effort with the same power output as when the same athletes were not using Topical Edge. Most basically, the same amount of power can be expended with less tax on the body when using Topical Edge.


Topical Edge harnesses the power of one of the most common things found in any kitchen (baking soda), proven yet never practical for athletes, and delivers it in a topical form for your athletic benefit: whether racing, training, or spending a long day in the saddle.


Our teams and athletes have tested Topical Edge; now the science backs it and we want you to try it!
