Sunday the 25th August was the Oeztal Marathon Cycle in Austria. Stephan Nuesser (Sportfasting team) completed the 240km ride in 11hrs 58min. It is an incredible ride with three Category 1 climbs which total 5 400m of vertical ascent for the whole ride. Conditions were very tough with a lot of rain and the tops of the climbs were snow-covered. It is a great achievement for Stephan whilst more than 1 000 entrants failed to finish!
This weekend is the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc (click this ‘Link’ to check it out) where Philip van der Merwe is competing. It is a 168km run with 9 600m vertical ascent! Philip recently did the Sportfasting program, he managed to get his weight down by 4kg and says he feels good in the run up to this event. Wishing him all the very best.
In the next three weeks we will be receiving ‘Keep the Switch’ mini packs which are 75g packs of the Sportfasting amino blend. This is for the 3 day ‘Mini fast’ which is the perfect way to awaken your fat-burning metabolism again and maintain your form. Details and prices to follow on our website but feel free to contact us with any queries.
