Mountain Biker - Hammering Since: 1996
Hi, I am Wendy Skean. I started riding mountain bikes and racing at age 45 when I was a single mother and had two teenage sons I wanted to be active with. As I was training for my first, of 8, Leadville 100 races in 1996, my son told me about Hammer Nutrition. I had trouble eating solid food when racing, so Hammer's Sustained Energy really was what I needed. I also used E-Caps. From then on, I used Hammer Nutrition Products for all rides and races. I have continued to race all manner of endurance races. I raced 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo 14 times, solo, always on the podium. I raced the Breck Epick Stage race twice, was the oldest racer, and was on the podium. At age 79 I am still racing endurance events and more intense Time Trials. Without Hammer Nutrition's numerous products, I know I would not be able to be racing at the level that I am. I use their products that keep my bones strong, my body healthy, and my riding and racing strong. It is hard to say what products are my favorite because I value all of them. Chocolate Recoverite after every workout or race is a must. Chocolate Perpetuem for long rides and Chocolate Whey Protein to help recover. I see a theme. Since I am usually the oldest female racer at any event I go to, I am proud to wear my Hammer kit and show that Hammer keeps you going at any age.
