Cavendish, who has 25 stage wins at Le Tour de France and is regarded as one of pro cycling’s top sprinters, is an outspoken proponent of healthy lifestyles and cycling for everyday well-being. He’s also a believer in proper nutrition for optimal performance, whether for athletic gains or everyday life. This focus on health and nutrition led him to American pistachios, which are a nutritious addition to a well-balanced diet, particularly for those who participate in active lifestyles.
