Thor Hushovd takes stage 6 of the TDF, Cancellara still in Yellow Jersey

News - Sports Articles


Barcelona, Spain (Sports Network) - Norway's Thor Hushovd won a sprint to the finish line to capture Stage 6 of the 2009 Tour de France, while Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland will retain the yellow jersey as the overall leader of cycling's most prestigious event by mere fractions of a second over American Lance Armstrong.

Hushovd finished Thursday's 181.5-kilometer trek in rainy conditions from Gerone to Barcelona in a time of four hours, 21 minutes and 33 seconds. He earned his seventh career Tour de France stage victory and first this year.

Spaniard Oscar Friere was second, followed by countrymate Jose Joaquin Rojas and Germany's Gerald Ciolek. All three were credited with the same time as the stage winner, as were the next 39 riders.

Cancellara and Armstrong were among the large first group, placing 10th and 27th respectively, to remain virtually tied atop the overall standings.

Only fractions of a second separate the two, with Armstrong's Astana teammates occupying the next three spots. Spain's Alberto Contador, the 2007 Tour winner, is 19 seconds behind in third, followed by Germany's Andreas Kloden and American Levi Leipheimer. Kloden trails by 23 seconds and Leipheimer is 31 seconds off the lead pace.

Creatine Supplements...

So, what is creatine? Our bodies naturally make the compound, which is used to supply energy to our muscles. It is produced in the liver, pancreas, and kidneys, and is transported to the body's muscles through the bloodstream. Once it reaches the muscles, it is converted into phosphocreatine (creatine phosphate). This high-powered metabolite is used to regenerate the muscles' ultimate energy source, ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
Unlike steroids or drugs, creatine is 100% natural and occurs naturally in many foods; therefore, it can never be banned from any sports or international competitions (unless they banned eating meat). Many foods especially herring, salmon, tuna, and beef contain some creatine. However, the very best source of creatine by far is creatine monohydrate because it contains more creatine per weight of material than any other source. sells only high quality 99.9% pure pharmaceutical-grade creatine monohydrate.

Nitric Oxide Supplements

1. What is it and where does it come from?
Nitric Oxide is a free form gas that is produced in the body and is used by the body to communicate with other cells in the body. To produce this gas, enzymes in the body break down the amino acid Arginine.

Nitric Oxide is a molecule consisting of one atom of nitrogen and one atom of oxygen. The production of Nitric Oxide occurs when the amino acid L-arginine is converted into L-citruline through an enzyme group known as Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS). The chemical process of conversion is shown in figure 1.


Protein Supplements...

High protein diets, like Atkins Diet and South Beach, continue to gain in popularity among many dieters. Some athletes even use these diets and find they lose weight. Depending upon the type of athlete you are and what sort of sport you play, you might want to question the role of the high protein eating plan. Athletes should realize that much of the weight lost on these diets is a result of a decrease in total calories and the water loss that occurs with muscle glycogen depletion. If you perform high intensity or endurance training you probably know that glycogen depletion is one of the reasons athletes 'bonk' or 'hit the wall' in endurance competition. Without enough easy to access energy, in the form of glycogen, we simply run out of fuel.
