A few weeks ago our team rode in the Chico Wildflower. While hanging out after the ride we met Richard Smith the founder/owner of Fluid Recovery Drink. A little history on Fluid from http://www.livefluid.com/:
"Fluid founders Richard Smith and Dave Brown gained local and national attention for their research in nutritional biochemistry at Cal Pol State University and their work with athletes both nationally and internationally. Today they continue their sports science research and are developing new products to persify the Fluid line of recovery drinks.
You can find the stylized Fluid logo sponsoring athletes across several disciplines, including Olympic Track & Field athletes, BMX world champions, AVP volleyball players, and a professional triathlon development team. For more information about NEHP, Fluid, or its founders please contact us.
The original mission: Fluid, Everything you need, nothing you don’t."
We were chatting with Richard and we mentioned our upcoming RAAM adventure. He was immediately hooked and he offered his help in any way he could. We mentioned that we did not have a recovery drink at that point and he said "DONE". Richard is sending us all the product we will need for recovery after every 4 hour shift.
Richard has also set up a promotional code for all Team FARA fans: Fluid is proud to be a supporting sponsor of TeamFARA! For a limited time, 20% of every order placed at http://www.LiveFluid.com/ with code "GoTeamFARA" will be donated back to the team. Go get some Fluid Recovery drink now & support the team!
