Ryan Arciero Wins The 2021 Vegas To Reno Off-Road Race With The FluidLogic Hydration System
Hydration played a major factor into Arciero's focus and physical abilities while racing in triple-digit heat

The new truck comes after his #32 Levis race truck burned to the ground at the 2020 Vegas To Reno race, ending what would have been a great season for the team. "With this win, I feel like the Phoenix rising," said Arciero. "It was also the first time I used the FluidLogic hydration system in an actual race, and along with the new truck, it also performed flawlessly."
Arciero knows about proper hydration from his training riding road bikes long distances. "When it comes to hydration, I know my body and when to drink while I'm riding," he said. "The fact that I can program the FluidLogic system was a big advantage for me. I found the flexibility to be a huge benefit. I can set the pressure, the amount of fluid, and the frequency, based on what I know my body needs. This race was probably the worst environment with triple-digit heat and a dusty environment. I programmed the FluidLogic system to give me short quick drinks more often, and when I got to the finish line, I felt great."
The results of a preliminary study on motorsports hydration conducted by Dr. David Ferguson Ph.D. ASCM-CEP, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Kinesiology at Michigan State University (MSU), demonstrated a large difference in a race driver's core temperature, overall performance, and improved focus leading to faster lap-times when hydrated with an optimized drinking pattern. "I usually think I needed more water less often, but with the FluidLogic system, it was the exact opposite. By hydrating more often, there was no fade-off towards the end of the race, and not having a third line off my helmet was huge."
The FluidLogic Coaxial system feeds fluid through the fresh-air inlet hose connected to Arciero's helmet via the Maglock Air magnet coupler. Arciero will be racing next at the 2nd SCORE Baja 400 in September, a race he won in 2019, and hopes to utilize his new race truck and the FluidLogic system to his advantage.
