ASEA Athlete ~ Antony Galvan

My name is Antony Galvan I am the current California masters state criterium champion.

There is a really big race that happens every year at Manhattan Beach Grand Prix. I have won it the last three years in a row. This year I was going after number four. I was very pumped for it. About three weeks prior I was doing a race on the other side of the country and had a horrible crash. It put me in bed, I got a bad infection, I was on antibiotics, I couldn’t do anything.

The last week of those three weeks of doing nothing a friend turned me onto ASEA. I started taking it twice a day. That was the only thing I did, I didn’t ride my bike…Nothing! I came out and I won for the fourth year in a row. The biggest race of the year.

One of the things that makes criterium racing unique in cycling is that it demands that you be able to put out an extremely hard anaerobic effort, then recover almost immediately! Then do it again and do it again and again. Its not like a marathon where you just go go go endurance.

That’s the first kind of fitness that you loose when you take time off. It’s the one that you really have to work hard to maintain constantly staying on top of it. So to sit on my back, to lay on my back for three weeks not doing anything. Days are ticking off, I’m seeing there is a counter there is my race. I missed two weekends of racing being back here that would have used as my prep. Everything is going out the window and I am just like “I am not going to be able to pull this off” Then to come within three days before the race I got on my bike. I got on my bike three days! The only thing I had done for a week prior was take ASEA. That was my training.

I couldn’t have found it at a better time, I am five week out from nationals and I am going to Portugal for Worlds. There is some big stuff coming up and this is absolutely going to be part of my protocol.

It’s like the blind test, I did nothing except take that and I won. So imagine when I start doing something and taking that. I am very excited for the races to come.
