Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE: HLF) and UCI Professional Cycling Team SpiderTech
powered by C10 announced a one year sponsorship agreement making
Herbalife the team's Official Nutrition partner.
The riders will be fueled with the new Herbalife24 sports performance
line, which includes Formula 1 Sport, Hydrate, Prepare, Prolong, Rebuild

SpiderTech will compete in the upcoming USA Pro Cycling Challenge in
Colorado, as well as having raced in the Amgen Tour of California, two

nutrition products, Team SpiderTech riders will have an optimal pre-race

formulating these products," says Steve Bauer, Director Sportif, and
Olympic medalist who wore the famed Maillot Jaune (Yellow Jersey) in the
Tour de France in 1988 and 1990. "The product diversity suits all of our
riders' needs." Team SpiderTech also hails the fact that the Herbalife24
products do not contain any artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners.
