Tailwind Nutrition is proud to announce a partnership in 2018 with the Epic Rides Off-Road series, mountain biking's most celebrated endurance events. With off-road competitions in 4 states across the country, the annual series will offer Tailwind Nutrition Endurance Fuel on-course at all aid stations, and it will also be available for purchase at each event's Bike and Gear Expo.

For the 14th year, thousands of participants will battle it out to compete for the $160,000 purse prize that is equally split amongst male and female pro racers at the Epic Rides Off-Road Series. Not just for experts, the race series also welcomes thousands of beginners and seasoned amateurs to enjoy three days of mountain bike culture, live music and world class singletrack.

Tailwind Nutrition's Endurance Fuel is simple to use, and gives cyclists all the calories, electrolytes and hydration they need to compete at their highest level. Additionally, with its mild flavor, cyclists are able to easily drink it all day and avoid stomach distress after extended periods of high-intensity output, making it the ideal on-course drink for Epic Rides' event participants.

"Our #1 biggest goal on event weekend is for all riders to finish the distance they registered for...which is no small task," states Epic Race Series founder, Todd Sadow. "Having Tailwind Nutrition Endurance Fuel on-course will give all participants an added edge in knowing they can stay hydrated and fueled to get to the finish line. All of us at Epic Rides are very excited for Tailwind Nutrition to join us at each stop in the series, and for all participants to have the opportunity to interact with the brand while learning about their product."

Tailwind Nutrition will make its debut on-course at four signature events including; Whiskey Off-Road (April 27-29, Prescott AZ), Grand Junction Off-Road (May 18-20, Grand Junction, CO), Carson City Off-Road (June 15-17, Carson City, NV), and the new in 2018 Oz Trails Off-Road (Oct 5-7, Bentonville AR).

"The Epic Rides Off-Road Series is one of the premier mountain biking series in the country," says Rocky Gingg, Marketing Manager at Tailwind Nutrition. "Our team is stoked to partner with the crew at Epic Rides this year! We love that each event welcomes mountain bikers of all experience levels while focusing on good times, great trails, and the celebration of the sport."

Founded in Durango, CO by endurance athletes, Tailwind Nutrition's product line-up includes the original Endurance Fuel, and debuting in March 2018, Rebuild Recovery, the first sports recovery drink based on a patent-pending perfectly complete protein. All of Tailwind's products are made in Colorado and are free of artificial ingredients and common allergens like soy, dairy and gluten, and are non-GMO.
