It might not seem like spring quite yet, but by the time Dirt Fest rolls around Summer will (hopefully) be in full swing. That’s why we are please to announce hydration and nutrition specialists Infinite Nutrition have signed on to host our Hydration Station.
Located between the expo are and the trails, you can sample the latest flavors and formulas from Infinit’s customizable hydration and nutrition drinks. Then after your ride, you can quench your thirst and replace vital electrolytes and proteins.
Infinit’s products are unique because you can custom-tailor your formula based on your age, weight, gender, and specific dietary needs.
