Lionel Sanders - Pro Triathlete
- One of only 49 men to run a sub 8-hour Ironman with his 7:58.22 time at Arizona
- 3rd in the World Ironman Standings
- 1st place finishes in Ironman Florida and Arizona
- 1st in 16 of his 18 races in 2013
Lionel Sanders is ranked third in the world triathlon rankings based on points towards competing at Kona this year. Lionel is a member of INFINIT Canada and has lived there his entire life. From a young age, Lionel excelled in endurance sports and quickly became one of the top runners in his province.
Lionel started to lose interest in running and started to turn to drugs and alcohol to fill his time. Lionel's life quickly began to spiral out of control to the point where he was forced to drop out of school. In an attempt to save his own life and get him back on track, Lionel decided to sign up for an Ironman. With his goal to finish in mind, Lionel got back into training heavily and set his sights back on fitness. Lionel would finish his first Ironman in 2010 after 9 long months of training.
Today, Lionel works with INFINIT for all of his race and training nutrition needs as he continues to excel. Lionel has since finished first in two Ironman races as well as being one of just 45 men ever to finish an Ironman in under 8 hours.
“INFINIT has been a fantastic sponsor for me as an athlete really competing in three sports. The simplicity of their service and variability of their products has let me continue to make improvements and advancements in my athletic career.”
Lockwood Holmes - Professional Prone Paddleboarder
- 1st Place and World Record at 2014 Catalina Classic
- 1st Place Rock2Rock
- 4th Place Jay Race
- 4th Place Davenport Downrider
Lockwood Holmes is a professional prone paddleboarder who competes out of Malibu, California. Lockwood has always excelled as an athlete, so much so, that he had the opportunity to play division 1 football. After a horrific bike crash left Lockwood sidelined for his junior year he transferred schools for the chance to continue playing. After putting an end to his football career Lockwood moved to California to study business at Pepperdine University. He would go on to earn his MBA and eventually become the CEO of an investment company. Lockwood is also a proud father of two and full family man.
After taking a few years off of competing to focus on his career Lockwood was ready to get involved in something else to help balance out his competitive nature. Thanks to a group of friends at his local church, Lockwood was introduced into the sport of paddleboarding. Not only was Lockwood already a very experienced surfer, he also loved the community around the sport and found himself fitting in right away. In 2014 Lockwood decided to enter the Catalina Classic, the granddaddy of prone padleboardning. Lockwood went on to take first lace in 2014 as essentially a rookie and smashed the previous record that had been held for over 50 years by nearly 15 minutes.
Lockwood has been in constant contact with INFINIT since 2014 in order to develop a custom endurance blend tailored to him in order to replace any other additional supplements he would normally have to carry on his board. “When paddling, the less you carry on you, the more you are at an advantage. My personal board has bottle holders, with straws, so being able to rely on only liquids helps to keep the weight of the board down as well as leaves my hands free to paddle. INFINIT and I have been working together to create a custom endurance blend that I am able to carry in one 28-ounce bottle. That, paired with a smaller bottle of Napalm has provided me with plenty of energy and hydration while removing all need for any other bars and gels that would just slow me down in a high intensity race.”
Dede Griesbauer - Pro Triathlete
- 3 x Ironman Champion
- 3 x Top-10 Ironman World Championship Finisher
- 70.3 Champion
Dede Griesbauer is one of the top over 40 triathletes in the world. As a competitive swimmer in college, Dede won 10 All-American awards and captained the team to a championship in 1992. Dede took a break from sports to focus on her professional career, but in 2005 she decided to step away from her investment career to focus on triathlon.
In only her second year as a professional, Dede took first place at Ironman UK. Since 2007, Dede has been working with INFINIT Nutrition to create formulas for both her running and biking portions of her race, along with pre-race fuel. “I can’t take credit here. INFINIT Founder and CEO, Michael Folan created my formula for me! In a brief phone conversation, where we discussed some of my nutritional short comings in Ironman races (for me, it was bloating, while simultaneously bonking at mile 16 of the marathon in an Ironman), Michael created a formula for me, all the way back in 2007. To this day, minus some tinkering with flavor options, and adding caffeine I haven’t touched the formula one bit.
Since partnering with INFINIT, Dede has continued to shine as a triathlete. In 2009, Dede would top the podium again with a win at Ironman Brazil, and then again take home the victory at Ironman Taiwan in 2015. Dede has taken only her custom blends to Kona six times in her career and has since placed in the top ten three times, in three consecutive years! Today, she is one of the fastest over 40 competitors in the world and has high hopes for her 2016 season.
Landon Cassill - NASCAR Driver
- Top 5 Finish 2014
- 15 Race Starts so far in 2016
- 5 Laps Led
Landon Cassill is unique INFINIT athlete in the fact that he races NASCAR, something most wouldn’t really consider an endurance sport. But keeping mentally sharp in scorching hot suns at speeds over 200 miles an hour takes an immense amount of concentration to keep the car going straight let alone win a race. In one full length race a NASCAR driver can lose up to 12 pounds in water weight due to sweat alone. This is what Cassill has partnered with INFINT in order to have custom blends ready no matter that length and conditions of the race.
Cassill has been racing since the age of three when her first sat on a racing quad. He then moved up to go kart racing and progressed until he reached his NASCAR level today. Currently racing in the Sprint Cup, Cassil is racing against some of the best auto racers in the world. Over the last 7 years Cassil has competed in 205 Sprint Cup races and and finished 32nd in the series in his debut season
As Cassil heads into his grueling summer circuit, where heat in the car can get well over 140 degrees in the cockpit, Cassill has to be ready to sweat. Working with INFINIT has allowed Landon to build a variety of custom blends depending on the race conditions he will be facing each day. Aside from his NASCAR training Landon also competes in triathlons for a type of cross training and to imrpove his racing endurance and overall physical performance and plans to compete his first 70.3 race this year.

It took only about 15 minutes and they were great. They treated me like all their other customers and did a nutritional consultation. I did not need any expertise, I just answered their questions and they did all the work for me. I was able to tweak my custom INFINIT formula for long course and short course racing to maximize my potential and abolish any GI issues.”

Ryan Petry - Pro Mountain Biker
- 1st - Leadville Silver Rush 50 2015
- 1st - Hammerhead 100 2016
- 7th - Leadville 100 MTB 2015 - 6:42
- 5th - Firecracker 50 2015
From runner, to triathlete, to XTERRA pro, to mountain biker Ryan Petry has always been following his passions and narrowing down the recipe that makes him most competitive and motivated.
"Sometimes it takes a while to figure out what works best for you, and that is what I think is so cool about INFINIT Nutrition. It is so easy to fine tune your blend and experiment with ingredients until you find exactly what works for you."
Ryan Petry grew up a natural athlete, spending time running and cycling with his dad. Entering high school Ryan focused primarily on running, competing in 5k’s and joining both the schools track and cross country team. It wasn’t until his senior year of high school that he entered a triathlon and started to focus more in his cycling. By his senior year of college Ryan was racing XTERRA and endurance mountain professionally. After graduating from ASU Ryan moved to Boulder, CO to continue training and found success in endurance mountain biking, which continues to be his primary focus.
"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.
Lesley Smith - Pro Triathlete

Today, Lesley is a high caliber athlete and has had plenty of podium finishes to show for it. As a runner from a young age Lesley has always excelled in this part of her races and had the fastest run split in four of her five races in 2015.
“I worked with Ryan Good early last year to come up with customized blends for both training and racing and have found that INFINIT products digest well and provide the fuel needed to train and compete. I am not a fan of choking down thick gels, so moving away from these during the racing has been nice change the past two seasons. I can condense my nutrition on the bike into one bottle and supplement with water along the way. It does not matter in how good of shape you are, nor how much natural ability you have, if you are bonking and/or have an upset stomach!”
Rowan Jones - Off-Road Triathlete/Endurance Athlete

A friend of Rachel’s coaxed her into a cyclocross race and she knew immediately that cycling was the sport for her. Having never raced bikes before Rachel went from cat 4 to cat 2 in cyclocross and from cat 4 to cat 2 (soon to be cat 1) in road racing after just one year on the bike. Rachel has challenged herself with some bigger NRC races and hanging tough at Joe Martin Stage Race and Tulsa Tough.

- 2015 Elite Duathlete of the Year
- 7th at Ironman 70.3 Racine

Andrew Dunlap - Pro Mountain Biker
- 1st 9 hours of Cranky Monkey 2015
- 1st Bakers Dozen 2015 and 2016
Andrew Dunlap is a mountain bike racer who specializes in marathon distance races. After a short career racing on the road, Andrew moved into longer distance racing on the dirt, focusing on marathon distances.
Andrew has raced for a variety of organizations raising money for various causes such as rare orphan disease research, diabetes provisions in third world countries and clean water solutions for impoverished areas. Additionally, Andrew was recruited in 2014 to help coordinate an event that raises funds and awareness for the tragedy that is human trafficking. Their goal is to see the effort drastically reduce and eventually stop human trafficking in the United States and the world.
Andrew has been working with INFINIT since 2013 and has had nothing but success with every product he's used. “When you’re heading to the line of a 6, 7 or 8-hour race, everything with your bodies nutrition has to be perfectly aligned. You can have bad legs and still salvage a decent result, but if your nutrition is off even slightly, if you get behind on calories for even 20 minutes, that’s it. INFINIT provides the fastest and most complete nutrition product on the market, and one that I only have to reach for a bottle to slam down. I use variations of every product they offer, and actually a few different ones during a race. When you’re at the edge, pushing yourself to the limit mentally and physically on a tight and twisting single track, there is no time or energy to mess with a wrapper, or even a gel. Getting hydration and calories at one time is crucial to my success as an athlete.”
Beso Gavasheli - Pro Mountain Biker
- Seven Time National Mountain Bike XCO Champion
- Two time National Title in Road Bike Time Trials

Beso grew up in Tbilisi, Georgia where he attended school and first began mountain biking. Beso stayed in Georgia to attend the Georgian Technical University and earn a degree in civil engineering. Due to the lack of popularity of the sport of mountain biking in Georgia, Beso moved to the US in hope of sponsorship and racing opportunity.
Since moving to the United States, Beso has continued to compete on new terrain and meet more and more people that enjoy the sport that he has dedicated his life too.

Rachel completed her first 70.3 in 2009 and then her first Ironman at Ironman Florida the following year. Just one year later, after breaking the ten-hour mark Rachel was the first amateur female at Ironman Florida.
"I love the INFINIT custom mixes because they simplify my nutrition regimen and allow me to ensure that I am getting what I need. I don’t have to do all these calculations before heading out, just two scoops an hour. I can also create mixes for different parts of races/training. I really love the Mud for early morning swims. I don’t want to eat a big breakfast pre-swim, but also don’t like to train on an empty stomach. The Mud is just enough calories and caffeine to get me through early morning masters. I have always had some difficulty sleeping, especially while training hard. Nocturne has been amazing after tough days. It is a very unique recovery drink and I think it is awesome that Infinit offers it. I feel great the next day, much more ready to take on another hard day of training. The custom mixes, Mud and Nocturne are by far my favorite Infinit products but I also use Repair, some of the premade mixes and some Napalm."
Brittany Warly - Pro Triathlete
- 1st Place at 2016 Collegiate National Championships
- 1st Place at 2015 Clermont Draft Legal Challenge
- 2nd Place at 2015 Collegiate Nationals Draft Legal Race
Current reigning women’s collegiate triathlon champion, Brittany Warly, has really just started her triathlon career. Brittany is a former division 1 tennis player, and all around athlete that transitioned from tennis to triathlon after transferring from Santa Clara to CU Boulder. She fell in love with the sport right away and decided that triathlon, along with earning a degree in mechanical engineering, was how she would spend her college career.
INFINIT has been working with Brittany through ups and downs of her career to this point including a major bike crash that forced her out of competition and training for weeks. The physical scars heal quickly in these types of situations but the mental toll that it can take on an athlete is frequently under-estimated. As Warly has continued to improve as a triathlon competitor she began to take more of a leadership role for her college team and ended up leading them to their 7th straight National Championship. Winning the individual race lead to Brittany qualifying for the World University Championships in Switzerland where she will be one of three women representing the United States.

“INFINIT took a leap of faith on me and I really had to sell myself, since the results aren’t world class (yet). Building custom blends, mixing MUD in my oatmeal and pointing athletes towards a product I actually use makes me extremely happy."
Maddy Frank - CAT 1 Mountain Bike Racer
- 2016 Cat 1 Michigan State Champion
At only 15 years old Maddy Frank is not your typical High Schooler. Since she was six years old Maddy has been riding bikes with the rest of her family. When it comes to biking there really isn’t much that Maddy hasn’t tried. She has competed in BMX, cyclocross, triathlons, criterion, duathlons, fat biking,and now mountain biking. Maddy got her start thanks to an athletic family that has always emphasized bike racing; she was basically born into it. Maddy competes in races that range from 15 to 40 miles in the Expert Female or CAT 1 field. The family atmosphere of the team that she grew up around has made cycling that much more enjoyable for her. She closed out 2015 taking 1st Place in her age group at the Iceman Cometh Challenge, a grueling 30-mile mountain bike race held in Traverse City Michigan.
Maddy was named Meijer State Games Athlete of the Year 2015 and in June of 2016; Maddy was named the Blue Cross Blue Shield Michigan Kids Can kid of the month. This honor is given to kids under 18 that are participating in and excelling in athletic ventures. The goal is to inspire kids to get out and get active just like Maddy has done for almost ten years on her bike. On top of her accomplishments, her sponsors include Velocity Wheels, Freewheeler Bike Shop and also an Ambassador for Pivot Cycles, all which help support the busy race calendar.
To stay focused on training and motivated she was accepted into the USA Cycling East Coast Regional Talent ID Camp in West Virginia and attended her first USA Cycling MTB Nationals in Mammoth California.

Justin Kreger - CAT 1 Mountain Bike Racer
- Raced at 2016 US XC National Championships
- 2016 Cat 1 Michigan State Champ (U29)
- 2016 Midwest Regional Champion (17-18 Cat 1)
- 2015 MISCA State Champion (Varsity)
- 2014 Michigan Cyclocoss state Champion (Juniors)
At just 7 years old, Justin began racing his mountain bike in the local cross country races and Michigan Cup Endurance series and is now, at 17, a Cat 1 mountain biker. He has competed in races ranging from super short, high intensity short track, all the way up to 12 hour long endurance races. Mountain biking isn’t all the cycling he does, he has also raced in stage races such as the Valley of the Sun race in Arizona, road, crit, time trial, a few cyclocross races, and even does some track running. Although he has dabbled in all these disciplines, he is currently focusing on shorter XC style mountain bike races. By focusing his training on the short races, he has finished 4th in a local Pro/elite race, racing the National Championship at Mammoth Mountain, and winning the Midwest Regional Mountain Bike Championships.
Infinit has been a godsend when it comes to the endurance mountain bike races, and I just started using a new custom mix for my shorter races this year and it has helped tremendously. By eliminating the need to take my focus off the trail to eat or fiddle with gels, I am able to keep the hammer down and stay focused on the race.
Aaron Albright - U23 Endurance Mountain Biker
- 1st Pisgah Stage Race Enduro
- 1st Pisgah Stage Race Duo team
- 1st Bear Creek XC Cat. 1 state champ
- In 2015 made the podium for regional pro-class XC race
Aaron Albright is a 20-year-old former motocross rider turned mountain biker. Aaron has just began competing in the last two years and is already making an impact in the racing community. In 2015, Aaron took first place at Pisgah in both the stage race duo team event and in the overall Enduro competition.
Although Albright is fairly new to the sport of mountain biking he seems to have a knack for longer races that really test a rider’s endurance. Rides that last longer than three hours and sometimes upward of 100 miles are the rides that Aaron says he enjoys the most and really excels at. His love of endurance racing is part of the reason that he has partnered with INFINIT. Working with INIFINT over the last two years has allowed Aaron to adjust, and perfectly tune, his custom blend to the point where he knows exactly what to expect every race.
"There are no highs and lows, no sugar rushes or crashes. Before using INFINIT, I was using drink mixes that didn’t completely meet my calorie or electrolyte needs on the bike. That required the need for extra bars, gels, and salt tablets to be consumed during my training rides and races. Taking in all those extra supplies during a race was not convenient at all, and racing at the elite level in mountain biking is tough enough as it is! With INFINIT, my pockets are much lighter and I have much less to think about! Just drink and go.”
Christine Cross - Amateur Triathlete
Christine Cross is a highly successful amateur triathlete that got her start as a swimmer at the University of Michigan where she swam for four years. After her swimming career ended Christine began cycling in her free time to keep herself active and in shape. Christine met her now husband through cycling and he convinced her to enter her first Olympic distance race. At the time Christine had spent years out of the water and had virtually no running experience but she finished the race regardless of it being “the longest run of her life.”
Christine’s family has been her strongest support system since she began competing in triathlon with her brother and other family members cheering her on from the side line while her husband frequently races with her. She is looking forward to the day when she gets the chance to toes the starting line with her brother and husband there by her side ready to race as well. “Training and racing with INFINIT has enabled me to refine my nutrition and refine the perfect a formula. I'm able to train and race with formulas specific to my needs and the conditions of races and training environments. I like to keep nutrition simple and INFINIT allows me to do that.”
Tiziana DeHorney - Amateur Cyclocross Racer
Tiziana DeHorney is a determined, and consistantly succesful, amateur cyclocross racer. Tiziana has competed at the National Championships for different age groups since 2012 and continues to compete in the U20 division today. Aside from being a top level amateur cyclist Tiziana is a full time student at the University of New Mexico where she balances 15-18 hours of class with a full practice and race schedule as well as teaches hot yoga.
Long before she entered her first bike race Tiziana won a national championship in sparring. At the time Tizzy had no interest in biking but when her older brother got a “fancy new road bike” Tiziana wanted to get into cycling as well. She taught herself how to ride and was immediately hooked. Since then DeHorney has been competing in a variety of off-road bike races with one goal in mind, “inspire others to chase their dreams".
Craig Evans - X-TERRA Professional Athlete
For the last decade Evans has balanced a high-profile career in the healthcare industry while raising a family and mixing it up with the best triathletes in the game. He’s trained less than a lot of amateurs, and at the toughest of hours. He dubbed it “ninja training” as he headed to the basement after putting the kids to bed – a full days’ work in his rear view but his passion for sport still ahead.
Craig had a breakthrough season last year placing 2nd overall at the ITU Cross World Championships and taking 3rdin the U.S. Pro Xterra Series. Craig works full-time in the medical device industry and is the father of two. He is also busy building a new team (Optimum Endurance) and launching a new race series (Breakthrough Endurance). Craig defines professionalism and we greatly respect his commitment to family and giving back to the triathlon community that has given so much to him.
The unrelenting approach served him well over the years, culminating at the 2012 ITU Cross Triathlon World Championships when he finished as the top American, and 2nd overall behind only Conrad Stoltz. His celebration coming down the finish chute at Oak Mountain State Park that day is one of the greatest emotional displays in XTERRA history
"When I started racing, I was as beginner as it comes. First, enjoy every minute. You will meet some of the best people on the planet in the XTERRA community who will become friends for life. I love this sport and cannot imagine how my life would look without it. Second, get a coach. Coaches provide perspective, direction, and accountability. They also can incorporate methods for balancing work, racing, family, and life into your plan. Coaches can truly make the difference for an athlete not only in performance, but as the athlete approaches everyday life. Third, attend clinics. Use them to gain other perspectives. Learn how to make your racing day much smoother. The more prepared you are prior to the start of an XTERRA race, the more you can enjoy the ride!"
Chris Klug - Olympic Snowboarder
- Olympic Bronze Medalist - Giant Slalom
- X Games Gold medalist - Dual Slalom 2016
- Chris Klug survived a liver transplant in 2000 and battled back to earn an Olympic bronze medal two years later. Most thought he never would race again, but Klug, one of snowboarding's premier ambassadors, was on the snow a few months following the operation...and he continues to inspire on and off his snowboard.
In 2003 Chris used $3,000 out of his own pocket to start the Chris Klug Foundation. Chris was a professional snowboard racer when he was placed on the National Transplant Waiting List three years after being diagnosed with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC), a rare degenerative bile duct condition. After six years of being on the waiting list and three months at a critical stage, the day came. On July 28, 2000 Chris received his liver transplant! "It was like a new engine was dropped in me!" Six weeks later he was back on his snowboard. He had the opportunity to represent the USA at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, UT where he won a Bronze Medal. During Chris's time on the waiting list he promised himself he would do everything he could to spread the message of organ & tissue donation once he was able. He is now the father of a daughter and son with his wife, Missy.
He manages his own Real Estate business in Aspen, CO and makes the time to train and compete in endurance races such as the Elk Mountain Grand Traverse, Power of Four, and the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race.

Molly Roohi - Pro Triathlete
- 4th Ironman Louisville - 2014
- 1st Overall Patriots Half Iron - 2015
- 5th, Memphis in May - 2014
- 1st, Savageman 70.0 - 2013

Molly Roohi was introduced to INFINIT Nutrition during her time as an elite member of the Maverick Multisport racing team. Molly has been competing in triathlon since 2008 and has just recently began coaching. Along with a full time job as a PE teacher Molly works with her own clients as well as continues to train for her own races.
Molly took on a half Ironman as her first amateur race and realized triathlon was meant for her. Molly worked hard to improve her overall ability as a triathlete and in 2011 she earned a spot to race at Kona as an amateur. This race pushed Molly to her absolute limit and she began to question her choice in sports. After recovering for a few days Molly was determined to not let this be the end of her triathlon career, and it turned out to be just the beginning.
"Before I found INFINIT I cobbled together a bunch of different products from various sports nutrition manufacturers. The result? An inexact nutrition plan with way too much sugar and added preservatives and colors. When I developed my custom formula with INFINIT, I finally had everything I wanted in one bottle. Gone was the rudimentary chemistry, guesswork, and finger-crossing. With INFINIT I have my nutrition dialed in for race day. After so many hours of swimming, cycling, and running it’s such a comfort to know my race effort will be reinforced, not compromised, by fueling."
