Tim Lawson of the family-owned energy food firm Science in Sport has just secured himself a 1st Cat road race licence by using his own products, and training hard. In a year he went from the bottom of the rung to the top, despite starting out as "fat" and a "poor ambassdor for a sports nutrition company". There's hope for us all...

Lawson takes his own medicine…and has the licence to prove it

"My First Category Road Race Licence arrived in the post this morning," said Tim Lawson.

"After deciding that I’d just got too fat and wasn’t a good ambassador for a sports nutrition company, I trained pretty hard over the winter and started racing as a Fourth category racer at the beginning of the year. It’s pretty rare to go through all the categories in one year, especially for an old fat ‘un like me – but it does show what can be done with training and good nutrition."

And what SIS products has Lawson been scoffing?

Rego Rapid Recovery and Rego Nocte, the night-time formulation.

This is Science in Sport’s new range of protein products based around what the firm calls "a new protein kinetics model."
