Prepare for an honest ride, it's tough Tailwind electrolyte on course at connection for both Mid and Long course to access. This is a great endurance product, check it out here: http://www.tailwindnutrition.co.nz/ . Long course riders will also receive a sample sachet at registration, lucky!! Smile
