Mayuko Hagiwara Blog: Sponsors and Races in London

Hi, it’s Mayuko Hagiwara of Wiggle High5.

After competing in 2 long stage races, Giro Rosa and Internationale Thuringen Rundfahrt der Frauen, I took part in RideLondon, which is part of the new Women’s WorldTour.

The route was 5km long in the heart of London.  Although the distance of the race was quite short of 66km compared to other World Tour events, the race attracted large crowds of spectators.

I previously thought it would be more of a criterium than a road race, but it was actually fast and furious from start to finish with the average speed was 44km!  I’m no good at this type of race at all.

I could hardly be out front for the team, ending up with being drawn by the peloton.

We missed the podium as a team, but reacted very positively as we’ve tried our hardest.  We raised our spirit to move on at the post-race meeting!

Our next race will be La Route de France held in France from August 7th to 14th.

We will do our best as a team aiming at winning.

By the way, we as a team visited an event in London where one of our sponsors, High5 had their own booth, which you could imagine from the cycle show held in Japan.  I personally liked the idea very much of sampling their nutrition or sports drink at this kind of event.

As I recommended at the booth, High5 Zero tablet is very simple to make.  To make one portion of sports drink, you just need to add one or two tablets to a glass of water.  You also can choose from various flavours and caffeinated ones.

It’s zero-calorie and quite useful for me.  I use this tablet mostly for training as well as pre-/post -races.  Some of my teammates put a tablet in their sports drink for hydration during race.

It’s very easy to carry around too.

Highly recommended for hot condition in summer!
