As an endurance mountain bike racer, I do workouts regularly that burn three, four, and even five thousand calories. These aren't simply opportunities to survive though, I'm trying to push my body as far as it will go, to train it to be used to eight and ten hours of racing. With those kinds of physically taxing workouts, I have to replenish calories while I'm on my rides. So I use Infinit Nutrition.
During an NUE mountain bike race, every minute counts. Even though you're out there for most of the day, I have been merely seconds behind folks at the very end. The goal then becomes how to go as fast as you can with everything, including nutrition. What I've found from racing is that my body won't always handle eating solid food, especially when I start to dip into the five and six hour marks. But, it will still put down water just fine. To experiment, I began looking for a solution that was entirely liquid based. Something that would fuel my workouts for training, acclimating my body to it, but would also be fast for racing. After trying a few brands and disliking all of them, I found Infinit.
Infinit takes a holistic approach, designing their mixes to have everything the body needs during activity. Not only does this make life simpler, but it eliminates human error (which during a race can be quite high). I try to take in 300 calories and 20 ounces of water an hour while racing. I found that using their GoFar formula, I could get that all in! 300 calories and one bottle of water. Simple, easy, effective and it tastes good! Nothing like trying to choke down important calories only to not be able to handle the taste of it during the last hour of a race. Between bottles of GoFar, I'll use a gel flask and take in Napalm, which is their gel (also made from powder so that you can adjust its viscosity). This stuff is also fantastic to help give you a quick boost, especially during hard efforts. I occasionally mix it up too. While GoFar is my drink of choice, in the beginning of a race and at the end, I'll throw in some JetFuel and Speed to get caffeine involved. That has saved me more than once during a hard training ride or race.
Infinit is the solution that fits all of the needs I could have on the bike and I couldn't be happier with their nutrition! While other products get mixed reviews, I have found that 9/10 people who try it, absolutely love it.
