One of the free benefits to racers in our series is from a sponsor that’s been with us since the beginning, Tailwind Nutrition. We are supplying a cooler and racers can fill their bottles with Tailwind at every race this season. Take the Tailwind challenge directly through their website (money back guarantee) and order some today. http://www.tailwindnutrition.com/why-tailwind/
Fantastic season opener, tough comp in all groups. Over 105 racers today, awesome! Many thanks to Chris, RJ, and the rest of MTB Acadiana for getting it on point. Preliminary results here and podium shots below.
Due to statewide flooding, The Baton Rouge Battle has been rescheduled. The 2016 LAXC season opener is now Lafayette’s Acadiana Classic, coming up April 17. The working new date for Baton Rouge will be Sunday, May 15. Current registrations or requests for refund will be honored. In surveying both the Comite and possible alternate of Hooper trails on Tuesday evening, after two warm days of drying time, there were still large areas of standing water. Also, BREC has closed these trails to the public until further notice and we must honor their policies.
We’re pleased to announce the return of Tailwind Nutrition again this year as a state championship. We will be offering free Tailwind again at all of our races this year!
When racing hard, your body can digest about 200-300 calories per hour. Tailwind was developed to supply that, with minimal risk of indigestion. It’s easy to mix into your bottle, keeping you both hydrated and energized throughout the race course.
You may order your own supply online at http://tailwindnutrition.com. Eastbank Cyclery in Kenner also stocks Tailwind.
