Training tips for the Moo Brew Freycinet Challenge
With entries now open and the clock ticking to race weekend in October, it’s not always easy to get motivated and start the arms and legs moving.
Multisport can be a brutal pastime, particularly for the dedicated soloists out there, but it can also be a great social team event. We thought it would be fitting take the social approach and give some Moo Brew related winter training tips for each discipline giving you more reasons to get out there and get active.
A winter run can be wet and cold this time of year. A good hard run will heat you up and get the blood pumping. A great beer to cool down with and reward yourself is a Pilsner. Light, clean and crisp the Pilsner is a great post session refresher.
Paddling at this time of year is often wild. The kayak leg on race day can also be a challenging affair. A good paddle is fast and furious with a downwind run and best finished with a Pale Ale. This American Pale Ale has a good whack of hops and a clean finish, perfect after a session on the water.
The road bike leg at the Freycinet Challenge provides little rest, don’t let the seemingly flat course fool you. An out and back blast, training for this leg can be brutal on a cold and windy day. The best beer to sit down with and rest the legs is the Dark Ale, a perfect evening winter warmer.
It is no secret that mountain bike riders are partial to craft beer. After a day on single track, thirsts need quenching. Get out on the trails this winter and get those legs going. On race day some grinding ups and speedy downs give riders a reason to wind down after the stage and this is best done with a Single Hop 440 ml can in hand. This single hop, single malt beer is a post ride go to!
Go on, get out there and don’t forget to reward yourself.
