Originally from across the pond (Stockton, England), Rachel Landgon came to the US and settled in Kentucky to play college soccer at Murray State. After helping guide them to two conference titles, her soccer career came to an end, and she started looking for something to keep herself occupied. At first she tried her hand in triathlon (making it to Ironman 70.3 world championships in 2015), but soon after she realized her true passion rested solely on the bike.

Upon this realization, Rachel began competing in cyclocross races, and quickly moved from Cat 4 to Cat 2 in cyclocross and road racing in just her first year on the bike. At the Fat and Skinny Tire Festival, Rachel was able to take the sweep winning the time trial, road race and criterium, she also won Kentucky crit championship, and found the podium every day at dash for cash, Hyde Park and Madeira.

“INFINIT works for whatever you need it for. I have done triathlons, Ironmans, Endurance Bike races, Criteriums and Cyclocross. No matter the distance, the weather, INFINIT is the only nutrition that is easy to use, doesn’t give me GI distress and WORKS!”

Taylor Lideen grew up racing motocross, but decided to give the whole “pedal bike thing” a try based on his dad’s recommendations. After his very first ride on a neighbor’s old, beaten up trail bike, he was hooked. In his early career, Taylor competed in downhill and gravity events.

It didn’t take long to realize that with his body type and stamina, his true talent was in riding both UP and DOWN the hill. The 2014-2015 season introduced Taylor to enduro racing where he dominated the amature field, taking first overall in the Big Mountain Enduro Series.

In 2016, Taylor decided to return to his roots of endurance racing and jumped headfirst back in to the game. In his rookie year as a pro MTB racer, he took 3rd overall in the National Ultra Endurance Series. As it turned out, this style of racing was where his heart lay.

In 2017, Taylor was introduced to INFINIT Nutrition. He was desperate for relief from long standing GI issues, and after working closely with the naturopathic doctor who referred him, Taylor created his own INFINIT custom formula. After his stomach issues were taken care of, and nutrition was dialed in, he was able to put more energy and focus on his riding.

This season, Taylor has been traveling across the US with his wife, Mary, in their converted Sprinter van attending some of the nation’s top endurance, gravel and XC races.

Ryan Petry is a professional cross country mountain biker and a lover of anything that allows him to challenge his endurance. His interest in endurance sports began as a runner, but it wasn’t until his college years that he discovered triathlon and Xterra while enrolled at Arizona State University. It was then that Ryan began to realize his strengths on the bike shined with the longer, steeper, and tougher races.

He began focusing on endurance mountain biking in 2014, competing in races like the Leadville 100. Ryan began working with INFINIT in 2016 when he realized the crucial factor that nutrition plays in his success.

In 2019, Ryan will continue racing the most competitive endurance mountain bike races in the country, and contending gravel races like Dirty Kanza, Belgian Waffle Ride (BWR), and SBT GRVL, using his Custom XC and Endurance Blends to keep his fueling and hydration simple.

"In mountain bike races it can be almost impossible to eat and drink enough while navigating rocky, twisty singletrack. I love that I can get my calories and fluids at the same time. It gives my pockets more room for essentials and helps prevent littering. Not to mention no more goopy, sticky hands and pockets. Less fumbling around, more racing”.

Ginny Cataldi, elite triathlete and influencer, found triathlon while going through a dark point in her life. She felt incomplete, like she was missing something. She knew she needed to make a change so a friend suggested that she train for a triathlon. Ginny had swam in college but had vowed never to get into a pool again. With no bike, and minimal running experience, she reluctantly agreed.

With 2 months of ‘training’ under her belt, Ginny competed in an Olympic Plus distance race. As she neared the finish line she heard somebody yelling, “Here she comes! The first female!” Ginny did not really understand what that meant until she heard the announcer saying, “Congratulations Ginny Cataldi! Our first female finisher from Phoenixville PA.” She was flying high, but not because she had won her first race. It was because she had accomplished something that made her feel alive and free. She was happy, hungry and wanted more. From this first tri experience to being a 2x Kona finisher, Ginny has developed a passion to compete.

This year she’s hoping to be faster, stronger, and have a healthy and balanced race season. Ginny uses her INFINIT Custom RUN and BIKE Blend because it streamlines her training, her racing, and her recovery, giving her better results and less to toy with. “INFINIT takes the guesswork out of nutrition needs and gives me THE ultimate plan.”

Kayla got into triathlon as way to find herself during a rough patch in her life, “I remember riding my mom's old touring bike (with crotch rocket gears and a rack for backpacks on the back of it) in the middle of an Olympic distance race thinking, ‘this is the best thing ever.’ It allowed me to find passion, faith, and strength in myself again.” Since then, she has made it her mission to help others find that very same thing, recently through the development of her coaching business, and through the documentation of her journey in her popular blog and Instagram Where Your Feet Take You.

Over the last couple of years Kayla has finished top in her age group in multiple 140.6 and 70.3 distances. She has even gone on to compete in the Ironman World Championships twice, with the most recently being in 2018 where she finished 8th in her age group.

INFINIT has not only played a huge factor in her success as an athlete but as coach as well because it provides an easy way for Kayla to help others nail their race day nutrition as they journey to their own finish line.

“I started using INFINIT three years ago and since then I have come to love everything about it. It was the only product that really allowed me to chase my dreams without having to chase a porta potty.”

His tastes evolved from BMX to motocross (for over eleven years), before changing his focus to cross country mountain bike racing.

Kyle was named the Single Speed Mountain Bike National Champion in 2015, and has also landed on two Collegiate XC National Championship podiums. In 2017, he took home second place in the 2017 Epic Rides Series Overall.

“Infinit nutrition played a key role in my accomplishments after I was introduced to it by a teammate during the 2016 season.” Kyle’s primary goal for the 2019 is to make the selection for the Marathon World Championships and represent the United States.

Eric Engel grew up playing soccer his whole life. When he started college, he missed the competitive environment of soccer and started looking for something to fill the void. One morning, he awoke to the sound of cowbells and cheering. As he wandered outside, Eric came to find IRONMAN Wisconsin going on. He had heard of IRONMAN, but didn’t know much about it. Seeing all those people out there, pushing themselves beyond their limits, truly inspired him.

The next semester he signed up for a triathlon training class through the University of Wisconsin. It was just a 2-credit class, two days a week, but it was enough to fuel his passion. At the end of the semester he did a class triathlon (olympic distance), and the day after he signed up for his first official race.

“I may have been in over my head, but that’s okay!” 8 years later, Eric has completed 14 IRONMAN races, including 4 trips to the IRONMAN World Championships.

Eric first found INFINIT in 2014, while working for a local retail store in Delafield, WI. Before INFINIT, Eric was using 12-18 gels + Gatorade during an IRONMAN. Today, he’s using 3-4 bottles of INFINIT instead. “I started using :GO FAR and :REPAIR for my daily training. After a few months of using :GO FAR, I worked with an INFINIT formulation specialist to develop my custom formula. It took a few iterations to lock down what my body needed, but since then it's been great!”

Olympia (sister of Rudy) grew up in the South of France near Nice, just a short drive away from where the 2019 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship will take place. As a kid, growing up in an athletic family, Olympia swam and ran track. She even briefly dabbled in Sprint triathlons at the end of her high school years.

At 20, she moved to NYC to attend college after which she traveled and lived in 7 countries. After 8 years of “galavanting around,” Olympia moved to Boulder and decided to give triathlon a second shot.

Just a year and a half after starting her triathlon career, Olympia is hoping to turn pro by the end of the 2019 season. When she's not training, she likes to spend time with her boyfriend and dogs, baking bread, enjoying a juicy burger at Five Guys, catching a movie, and teaching kids how to swim.

Her father is the one who originally introduced her to triathlon and it is something she has grown to love and has been blessed to share with him over the past few years, “I enjoy competing in triathlon because of the welcoming endurance community, and because every time I toe the line to race it is a chance to push myself beyond limits that I ever thought possible.”

Alycia has been using INFINIT nutrition for 5 years. She loves to be able to customize her formula, and loves that she doesn’t have to worry about any added colors or chemicals. “The ability to customize my formulas makes me feel totally confident that Infinit products are wholesome and good for me.”

Rowan Jones
is an endurance athlete and a United States Air Force veteran. After High School Rowan joined the USAF to serve his country, but by the end of his service he had found that he had fallen into a sedentary lifestyle. Rowan, a lifelong athlete, decided he needed to reclaim his health and purchased a mountain bike in an attempt to get active again.

As his fitness started improving he started competing in mountain bike races, half marathons up to full marathons, and finally on to half and then full Ironman distance races. Although he has done quite a bit of road racing, he’s currently focusing on off-road.

Rowan also qualified for and ran the Boston Marathon, New York City Marathon, Chicago Marathon, and earned a spot on Team USA racing at the 2017 ITU Cross (Off-Road) Triathlon World Championship.

Rowan is not only an athlete but a pilot, an avionics salesman, and a father. He is entering his third season as an INFINIT athlete, and chooses INFINIT (including his Custom Adventure Race Blend) because “[the products are] customizable, simple, effective, and allow you to concentrate on racing and training instead of worrying about when to take gels, bars, and salt tabs.”

Tyler Philips grew up playing traditional sports like football or baseball, or whatever was “in season” like the majority of the kids around him. However, around 11 or 12 years old Tyler deviated from the ‘norm’ and he started taking an interest in mountain biking. By the age 14, he was racing up and down the East Coast seemingly every weekend. By the time he reached 18, he had started to feel burnt out, college was on the horizon and he needed a break.

That break extended 15 years until one day a close friend of his—who had recently gotten heavily invested into cycling—convinced him to race again. That’s all it took to reignite his competitive fire, and he quickly rode his way back into racing the Pro/Cat 1 field for cross-country mountain biking.

He was first introduced to INFINIT by his cycling coach after suffering from stomach cramps and dry mouth during and after races and hard rides. After trying and loving his Custom XC Blend, he started trying other products like REPAIR and RAW. “I liked the fact that these mixes didn’t leave the lingering taste of chemicals.”
