June 8, 2010

About the Film

Ride The Divide follows the story of three riders during the 2745-mile race from Banff, Canada to Antelope Wells, New Mexico.

After a season of training with a healthy serving of focus (obsession for some) folded into the mix before the final event(s) deserves some release. There is a time for everything. If you don’t take the time to re-group, you’ll likely find that your body and mind are not ready for the customary build to goal attainment when the time is right. So kick back a little-you deserve it. Continue Reading »

Hot Tip: Frozen Hammer Gel

June 5, 2010

Frozen Hammer GelWant a cool treat on your next run or ride? Try freezing your Hammer Gel! Before your next warm weather workout or race, toss your Hammer Gel in the freezer until the gel is a thick consistency. Be careful, because if you leave the gel in the freezer for too long, it will freeze solid. Anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour is perfect for a single serving packet.
