London, Sept 8 (ANI): Olympic gold medallist and sprint cyclist Chris Hoy has revealed his formula of success Haggis and Red Bull.

The 32-year-old cyclist, who became the first Brit for the century to win three golds at the Beijing games, admits that the stomach churning combination of haggis and red bull helps him stay on track.

He says that he sometimes adds vodka to the Red Bull to give himself a high.

Haggis and a Red Bull and vodka is fine by me though a great Scottish meal, the Daily Star quoted him as saying.

Red Bull is something I have always used to give myself a bit of a lift, particularly straight after training.

When it comes to what I put in my body I believe in balance.

If I do want something really strongly like some junk food then it has never been anything that I have been too concerned about afterwards, he added.

Hoy has been riding a bike ever since he was six, when hit movie E.T. hit the silver screen.

From that moment on I just wanted to be part of that new sport which involved BMX bikes. I was inspired and then the whole BMX thing took off and it spiralled from there, he added. (ANI)
