Our last episode with Yoann Barelli was super popular, so I thought it would be good to get him back on for a catch up. He’s had a tough start to the season with an unlucky knee injury putting him out for the rest of the year. So we chat about his season so far, the injury and journey to recovery, his photography, drug addiction, doping and much more. So hit play and enjoy catching up with the one and only Yoann Barelli.
To find out more about Yoann, you can follow him on Instagram @yoannbarelli, or to see more of his photography, you can follow his @barelligraphy account. Yoann has also started a YouTube channel which you can find here.

We all sweat at different rates, and lose different amounts of sodium in that sweat, so it’s not a ‘one size fits all’ fix. Precision Hydration realise that, and are here to help you optimise your personal hydration. Head to PrecisionHydration.com to complete the questionnaire and get your own hydration plan specific to your needs.
