Tailwind’s glucose/sucrose fuel takes advantage of how our bodies absorb nutrients. The combination of Tailwind’s fuel, electrolytes, and water has a synergistic effect, allowing the body to absorb more of each. Once in the bloodstream, the glucose in Tailwind fuels muscles directly, allowing athletes to go longer at higher intensities. Tailwind’s electrolyte profile mimics what you’re sweating out. Tailwind is all you need. Go ahead and donate those electrolyte pills to a good cause. You won’t need them anymore (and you won’t need to buy them!).
Tailwind will be provided on the Malibu GRANFONDO course in Naked flavor at a 200 calories/24oz of water concentration with a full complement of electrolytes.

Uvaggio makes wine in California from grape varieties indigenous to Italy and the south of France.
Their theory is that if California has a climate which is great for growing Mediterranean varietals, why not take advantage of it? Since they have been on this path for a couple of decades now, they have found the right places, for growing these cultivar, primarily in Lodi. So we urge you to discover this for yourself and try their wines.
Uvaggio expressions are steeped in California's traditions, with a nod towards Europe’s restraint, so you find will our wines to be a contemporary synthesis of these two approaches.
Meet Jim Moore, Proprietor/Winemaker at our CAF VIP Reception at Pedalers Fork in Calabasas, where Uvaggio wines will be paired with an off-menu dinner prepared by Michelin Star Chef, Matthew Accarrino.

The development of Beta Red Pre-Workout Formula followed a very similar path. The result is the most effective pre-workout product available for endurance athletes.
