Taylor Lideen grew up racing motocross, but decided to give the whole "pedal bike thing" a try based on his dad's recommendations. After his very first ride on a neighbor’s old, beaten up trail bike, he was hooked. In his early career, Taylor competed in downhill and gravity events.
It didn't take long to realize that with his body type and stamina, his true talent was in riding both UP and DOWN the hill. The 2014-2015 season introduced Taylor to enduro racing where he dominated the amature field, taking first overall in the Big Mountain Enduro Series.
In 2016, Taylor decided to return to his roots of endurance racing and jumped headfirst back in to the game. In his rookie year as a pro MTB racer, he took 3rd overall in the National Ultra Endurance Series. As it turned out, this style of racing was where his heart lie.
In 2017, Taylor was introduced to INFINIT Nutrition. He was desperate for relief from long standing GI issues, and after working closely with the naturopathic doctor who referred him, Taylor created his own INFINIT custom formula. After his stomach issues were taken care of, and nutrition was dialed in, he was able to put more energy and focus on his riding.

"INFINIT has been a huge advantage in my training and racing. Their recovery formulas helped me train hard day after day, and my custom hydration blends are dialed in perfectly."
Despite his early success, Matt suffered a major setback in 2017. 75 miles into the bike portion of the race, while on pace for a top-10 finish in the 2017 IRONMAN World Championship in Kona, Matt was struck by a van. Matt suffered life-threatening injuries to his face and neck but was determined to return to triathlon.

Born and raised in Hood River, Oregon, Kayla Bowker is a small-town girl with a desire for adventure. Kayla attended Gonzaga University where she earned a biology degree. Kayla’s permanent residence is now Spokane, WA where she lives, works, and trains.
Kayla got into triathlon as a way to find herself during a rough patch in her life, “I remember riding my mom's old touring bike (with crotch rocket gears and a rack for backpacks on the back of it) in the middle of an Olympic distance race thinking, ‘this is the best thing ever.’ It allowed me to find passion, faith, and strength in myself again.” Since then, she has made it her mission to help others find that very same thing, recently through the development of her coaching business, and through the documentation of her journey on her popular blog and Instagram Where Your Feet Take You.
"I started using INFINIT years ago and since then I have come to love everything about it. It was the only product that really allowed me to chase my dreams without having to chase a porta potty."
INFINIT has not only played a huge factor in her success as an athlete but as a coach as well because it provides an easy way for Kayla to help others nail their race day nutrition as they journey to their own finish line.
Kayla has won her age group in a 70.3 race every year for the last 6 years, even through two pregnancies. Kayla will be trying to keep this streak going into 2022.

Elizabeth Barbosa can’t be defined by one sport, she is an all-around athlete with major achievements in swimming, Olympic lifting, and alpine climbing. Liz joined US Masters Swimming and started competing in open water events. She soon qualified for Masters World Championships where she was the highest finishing American.
After achieving this success in swimming, Liz decided to pivot into alpine climbing. In 2014, she climbed the most difficult route up Mount Rainier. This experience started Liz’s love affair with mountain climbing, and she has gone on t climb some of the most iconic peaks in the Himalayas, Mexico, and the Andes.
"Every time I take my custom blend I feel like an overachiever, I can go effortless for hours, it's like a superpower drink that is actually good for your body!"
In January of 2020, Liz attempted to climb the highest mountain in North or South America, Aconcagua. While climbing, Liz suffered from Pulmonary and Cerebral Edema, leading to an abandonment of that attempt.
This setback didn’t overwhelm Liz, she’s grown from it and learned that climbing is about overcoming yourself, it’s about transforming long, exhausting hours in the mountains into strength, and about taking in failures, and pushing yourself to be even more fit, driven, and resilient for the next adventure, which includes competing in trail and ultrarunning, as well as olympic weightlifting events.
