- Charlie Ehm, 6-time Ironman Canada finisher, 2-time Hawaii Ironman qualifier, competitive ultrarunner and cyclist

Roctane was like using rocket fuel. I used it in my second Ironman and won."

through Lyell Canyon. I saved it because I knew it would be something that would make a difference when I was starting to fade. I don't use a lot of other nutritional
products when I run other than GU. It's been around so long and has been very reliable. Why experiment?"
