Media Nite Radio welcomes to the airwaves CEO, Christopher Dancel of IV Pitstop, Inc.  We will discuss this new inventive way to replenish the body on the go for extreme athletes

Mr. Dancel is an avid Superbike Track Day enthusiast and has attended many track days in California. During these events he, frequently found that staying hydrated was quite difficult—consuming enough liquids to prevent dehydration left him feeling bloated, which was extremely uncomfortable in the tight leather protective suit.

On a particularly hot day at Big Willows in Lancaster, the combined heat from his bike and the reflective heat from the asphalt was extremely tolling. He moved into the pits in attempt to cool off and reenergize. As he sat in a chair, rehydrating from the ride, a solution occurred to him: IV rehydration.

Through his experience a Police K9 Handler, he was familiar with the IV rehydration process; the method is used to relieve officers who endure heat exhaustion on the job. To determine whether this alternative method would work at racing events, he consulted with a close friend and physician, then tried the method at his next racing event. The result: he felt more comfortable physically and did not suffer from dehydration symptoms he encountered at previous races. Thus, IV Pit Stop was created.
