About Richard Drew & Well Fed Performance
WellFed Performance is the home of Professional MTB rider Richard Drew. It is here you can find insight into his entire training, racing, and nutritional program. The goal of WellFed is to be a hub of knowledge, entertainment, and information.
Richard Drew, 40 years old, resides in Dallas TX. He’s been on two wheels since he was five years old, first racing BMX and then transitioning into Motocross. Growing up in Phoenix AZ, the thought of racing mountain bikes was ever present. However, it wasn’t until August of 2013 that this actually became a reality. Not one to go halfheartedly into any endeavor, after a brutal first race, Richard put together an aggressive training plan and set his sights on his first Cat 2 35-39 victory and and a TMBRA State Championship.
Fast forward to Fall 2014 and Richard found himself competing at the local Pro level. Combining a love for training both on the bike and in the gym, Richard has garnered support from some of the finest names in the industry. Joining brother Rob as a Factory Pivot rider was a dream come true! Longtime partners Industry Nine, Skratch Labs, and Zoic Clothing will help anchor Richards goal to spread the “Stoke of Mountain Biking” across the country!
Community building, teaching, and racing are the focuses for 2018. The race schedule will be getting dialed back as a bit as both Richard and Rob ramp up The Ride Series MTB Skills Clinics. Check the event’s page for the latest schedule and catch a Clinic in a city near you!
A key part of Richards program is his nutrition. Being well fed is simple: eat real food and as much of it as you need! However, many people like to enjoy what they are eating and consuming meals that are quite tasty AND good for you is rather easily accomplished. Certain tweaks need to be made based on the individual and their activities and goals, but the basic outline is always the same. Here, Richard will share his first hand knowledge on what has worked best for him and give you an idea of how you can implement some small nutritional changes into your everyday life.
