Sweetgrass Reflections with Molly Baker

As we ramp up for the WORLD Premier of VALHALLA tomorrow night, we thought it would be fun to take look behind the curtain and into the world of what goes into making this kind of creative magic. Team CLIF Bar’s Molly Baker shares a bit about life on the road with the Sweetgrass crew below.

Over the past two winters life has been weird.

Apparently it worked, as Garmin-Sharp riders Andrew Talansky and Tom Danielson both ended up on the podium after today’s intense individual time trial up Vail Pass. What do Barb and Chris have in store for the team to ensure that they are at their best for stage 6?

If you’ve checked out the CLIF Bar blog over the last several days, you already know that Barb and Chris, the Garmin-Sharp team chefs, have been preparing amazing meals on the road for the team during the USA Pro Challenge.  While these meals are meant to be wholesome and tasty, they are also very purposeful, with almost every ingredient serving to keep the riders strong and sharp.
