The Kids are Alright

By the time Friday rolls around, hard-workin’ folks all over this world deserve a pizza for doing the grind. The same goes for athletes, it’s like working a second job sometimes. And the yearning for pizza is probably doubled, too.

Last Friday, we couldn’t wait until quittin’ time to bring on the proverbial ‘za, so we invited some likely suspects to help us break the workday mold. Turns out, the Team CLIF Bar BMX Athletes were way ahead of us! At their ages (13 – 25 yrs), most of

Team CLIF Bar Weekend Results Round Up

Wow, what a weekend for Team CLIF.  Four of us desk jockeys who work to keep our athletes fueled traveled to the Sierras for the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run.  We got to chat with our athletes and some of ultra running's best known names at a dinner co-hosted by our friends at Montrail the night before.  We also attempted to make the smokiest camp fire ever and enjoyed some time sleeping outside.

Team CLIF Runners Take On Transvulcania

Three Team CLIF runners competed in the Transvulcania ultramarathon on the island of La Palma, Spain.  Though not as well known as some of the other Canary Islands, La Palma was a beautiful setting for what was a very tough run that drew a truly world-class field of competitors.  Team Montrail and CLIF runner Dakota Jones took the win with an upset over favorite Kilian Jornet. 

The North Face runner, fueled by CLIF, Ian Sharman claimed a very respectable 16th place, making up
