Unzipped: Pro Cyclist Andrew Talansky

The Tour de France athlete shares his obsessions, on and off the bike.

Andrew Talansky is one of the most promising young cyclists out there right now. Last year, he took first place at the famous Criterium du Dauphine. He also battled it out in the Tour de France, despite suffering injuries from multiple crashes during the race. (His Tour sadly ended at Stage 11 when he called it quits—we can be sure he’ll be back to take care of unfinished business in the next round.) We caught up with the 26-year-old Cannondale-Garmin Pro team leader to find out some of his favorite tools for success. Here, the Talansky-approved gym bag essentials list.
