Our Mules hanging tight.....



In the 80+ Men's Division, 2009 Champions the Czech Masters won their second straight stage with a narrow 4 minute gap over the British Duo of Team Mule Bar/Abergavenny RC who are hanging tight and preparing for a big push to overcome their 8 minute overall deficit on the more technical coming stages where they feel they have an advantage.

'E's back - Mule Alex hits the road..

Hi guys

I recently had the privilege of obtaining a whole box of MuleBars from an acquaintance of mine who offers her services to the riders of the Cape Epic MTB race in Cape town.(medical services that is, just in case you were wondering) She is a nurse and each year she volunteers, so they give her a few boxes which she kindly distributes among her sporting friends for use in training.

I am rather selective as to which ride or run i take them on, usually anything over 2 hrs where the energy from breakfast would have worn off before I get home.
One such event occurred in may this year in the mountains approx an hour from Cape town called the "African X" 3 day trail running event. It is run in teams of 2 in a clover leaf format in tough terrain, and a perfect tester of how the bars could aid in supplementing my nutritional needs.

The first day was only 2 hrs so although carrying a bar with me ,I didn't get a need for anything but ate it post run as a recovery food.
Day 2 was around 4 hrs and i took 3 bars just in case. 2 Mango Tangos and a larger liquorice flavoured seedy bar which I've forgotten the name of. I can honestly say i felt energised and sustained throughout that stage and on the main climb of the day my partner hooked on a bungee cord, and just like a mule, i was able to pull his 90kg frame up that hill and slowly overtake other runners who were by now walking. I was nicknamed a "machine" afterward and had to attribute the above usual energy to MuleBars!

Needless to say, my partner as well as the other 4 guys staying with us in the same lodgings were adamant to get into my box of bars for the 3rd stage the following day!

We awoke to a raging thunderstorm , and whilst we were all reluctant to get our stiff bodies wet in the mountains, the sms came through to all participants phones that it was too dangerous to host the last stage, and it was called off. Personally, I felt well prepared to brave the conditions with a bar or two and i feel that had the organisers and all the athletes been on MuleBars, they would have felt the same.

Your bars Kick "ass" and i recommend them to everyone! Thank you for a great product.

News from day 1 at the TransRockies.... Mules on top!


The 80+ Men's Division was another tight battle on day one but this with an intercontinental flavour as a team from the UK beat teams from Canada and the Czech Republic to reach the top of the podium. Pete Turnbull and George Rose (Mule Bar) came in first ahead of Pat Doyle and Craig Bartless (Deadgoat Racing/RMCC) who finished just behind in second and last year's 80+ Men's Champions Milan Spolic and Martin Horak of the Czech Republic.
