Not only would he take first place, he would also shatter the previous record for the division, beating it by over ten minutes.

“Joining the team at INFINIT Nutrition and using their products has made a world of difference in my racing. Over years of experience with the one of a kind isotonic products that they provide, I have continued to improve my personal blend as I have improved my ability and performance. While other racers fumble with pre-weighed bags of powder to mix during the race, I save serious time by only needing one 28-ounce bottle of my endurance blend and a small bottle of TRiPWIRE to power through the entire race.”
