For those of you who do not know Joan Roch, around here he’s known for his less than orthodox approach to training and running and pretty much questioning the first principles of anything concerning running…
 

UNORTHODOX

What do we mean by unorthodox? Training plans, nutrition, clothing, shoes, ergonomics at the workplace, all of these, Joan has pretty much rejected the status quo in favour of exploring for himself and testing and documenting for the benefit of others .. the list is far from complete… and it was only very recently, during a car-pool ride with Joan (he chooses to avoid traffic in all forms) that he dispelled one misconception I had from reading his blog articles; (definitely worth checking out: informative and entertaining) one recurrent theme was his insistence on not eating during his runs, gels, energy bars, anything… hardly great ambassador material for a sport nutrition company right?

SHOCKER: JOAN ADMITS TO EATING… DURING LONGER RUNS…

TIME TO RUMBLE? JOAN PACKS FRUIT2

But no, it turns out Mr Roch does eat during races (just not training runs) if they’re in the 50-100 mile range! So in other words, it turns out that Joan does eat after all, just maybe not very much, and yes he’s more than a little selective!

INAUGURAL EDITION OF LA PETITE TROTTE À JOAN

We’re pleased to say that FRUIT2 and FRUIT3 do count among his choices, not only will Joan be packing FRUIT3 for the inaugural edition of the “petit trot a Joan” (literally Joan’s wee jog”) one of the many races (although technically not a race, more a combination of personal challenge and trail running) taking place at this year’s Ultimate XC, a festival of running and trail running held in St-Donat, Quebec.

GBC500 : Matt belanger's self supported ultra gravel bike race
GBC500 : Matt belanger's self supported ultra gravel bike race

It’s almost impossible to prepare for a 500 km bike ride. You may study the course, get all your gear dialed, look at the weather, train as hard as long as you can, there is absolutely nothing that can prepare you to give your all for 20h straight with (almost) no stop on the way
