I have joined a Team for 2008. I joined Team Zoo GU. I have really enjoyed the GU Nutrition and have a Zoot Tri Suit.
Here listed are all the goodies that I will receive:
custom team logo tri racing top, custom team logo tri shorts, visor socks, four 48 packs GU Energy Gel, two canisters GU2O powdered drink mix, eight water bottles, three gel flasks, one gel flask bike mount.
There is a membership cost that is part of joining this team. I searching into this and did lots of research before I joined. I am now very excited and can't wait to get the gear. More pictures to come!
Here is the acceptance letter:
