Online sports nutrition source and Christian Vande Velde partner with NBC Sports to show the keys to “Surviving the Tour”

BOULDER, Colo. (June 9, 2014)The Feed, a complete online source for sports nutrition and healthy eating, has partnered with NBC Sports to take viewers of the 2014 Tour de France inside one of the world’s most grueling races. Through a series of video segments, former professional rider Christian Vande Velde is showing what it takes to survive the most prestigious cycling event of the year.

“Christian’s wide range of experience in the trenches of the professional peloton gives him a unique ability to pull the curtain back on the lesser known intricacies of the sport,” states Matt Johnson, co-founder and CEO of The Feed. “His 16-year professional career saw him support grand tour-winning team leaders and ride to fourth himself in the 2008 Tour. There is no one better versed on the daily grind—and keys to success—in cycling’s most important race.”
