2009 Sponsors

It is with a grateful heart I announce my 2009 Sponsors:

Performance Wellness– Dr. Chris Sellers and his excellent staff of physical therapists, massage therapists, and friendly greeters have been critical to my recovery and success following an injury I sustained in Feb 2008. If you are suffering from a sports injury or “nagging” pain, call 512-491-7772 to setup a free consultation to diagnose the problem and see what they can do for you. These guys are extremely knoledgeable and very effective. They also offer sports massage at great rates

Puresport Nutrition– This Austin based company hooks me up workout and recovery drinks for hard races and workouts. Michael Phelps help put them on the map, their awesome products have kept them there. Their patented blend of 2.67 to 1 Carb to Protein ratio is ideal for endurance athletes to fuel better performance and faster recovery. The stuff not only works, it tastes awesome too! Most recovery drinks get a bad rap from all the protein isolates-whey, soy, casein, egg, whatever. Not this stuff! It tastes like Kool-aid! Try it!– Sean Ahmadi has also been very helpful to me in the recovery process. Not only is he the guy I go to to get professional bike fittings, but he has helped me understand the factors that lead to injury and how to prevent it. Sean is a certified coach and has drawn up training plans for me for all types of events. He offers you comprehensive advice to get maximum benefit from your training. Visit his website for contact info.

Chipotle-Congress location– This downtown location provides me high quality nutrition ranging from burritos to tacos to my current favorite, salads. Chipotle believes in serving food with integrity. From their site: “The hallmarks of Food With Integrity include things like unprocessed, seasonal, family-farmed, sustainable, nutritious, naturally raised, added hormone free, organic, and artisanal.” They are only open for lunch, but if you ever find yourself in downtown Austin, stop in and give them a try. Don’t be discouraged if there is a long line. The efficiency at which these guys work at is amazing!

Wefuse is a super cool restaurant on 4th St (in the Frost Bank tower) serving up a “a funky fusion of Japanese and French cuisine at a price that won’t break your bank account” I first came across this place during South By Southwest 09. I was wandering downtown looking for a good vibe and I found it here. Not only were the Milwaukee bands playing there that night fresh and stimulating, so was the food. A lot of their food is Caveman approved, meaning high quality meats and vegetables with no refined carbohydrates. Their flavorful infused teas are made fresh daily and are super tasty. Jon is a very passionate and talented cook. Tell them that I sent you, and he will offer you a discount! They are open from 11-6. Stop in for lunch if you’re in the downtown area, OR stop in after work and grab a to-go dinner. You’ll be glad you did!

Karmabiker (Chris Vandivere) provides me with the coolest, most professional action photos for use on my blog (if he’s at the same race that day). He primarily shoots TMBRA,TXBRA, and some Xterra events, but also does other jobs for hire. Check out his portfolio and give him a ring for your next event if you are searching for very nice and affordable photos.

Bobcat13 Photography -Bob and Joel are very friendly, very professional, and very enthusiastic photographers that also travel the region to photograph a wide array if sporting events. Give them a ring if you are looking for a photographer for your next event, or, if they happen to photograph you at a race, buy some pictures from them!

Hypoxico These guys manufacture and distribute altitude training systems. Please check out their site for more info and how everything works. I currently do not have any of their products, but hope to try some out very soon.

Beljum Budder Similar to Chamois But’r, but better! If you are prone to chafing in long rides or runs, get some of this stuff! It’s paraben free and has lots of other goodies not found in other chamois cremes
