Fluid Rocks out in the Desert!

Trifest 2009
Tucson, AZ

With a tune-up and four new tires, The Fluid Mobile headed Southeast this month for the 2nd Annual TriFest in Tucson, AZ.

Fluid Founders Richard Smith & David Brown logged over 1400 miles to join the biggest players in the multisport industry.

Attendees journeyed from around the globe for the conference and expo, hosted by Seven time Ironman World Champion Dave Scott was also in attendance, and was the guest speaker of Friday evening's banquet.

Team Fluid provided mechanical and nutritional support for the annual Friday morning ride up Mt. Lemmon, a 6,000 ft cycling climb over the course of 25 miles. Look for video of this ride coming soon!

Fluid was also able to connect with local sponsored clubs, including the University of Arizona's TriCats (one pictured right), as well as Arizona State's Triathlon Team.

Industry attendees included our friends Trigger Point massage therapy and SPIbelt, both from Austin Tx.

Founders Rich & Dave, pictured below, had both the pleasure and pain of a 60 second maximal effort cycling test to evaluate their power output. Dressed in jeans and flip flops, the guys jumped right in for a whole lot of hurt. Don't let those smiles fool you!

Overall, the trip was a great success, but we are glad to be home!
