New Forest Rattler sportive.
Earlier this year, MuleBar were approached by Phil and Lee from Cyclo Fanatic, a local (to us) events company of which the New Forest Rattler being their flagship to be their sports nutrition partners.
Embarrassingly we had not heard of this event before, and as one competitor told me, 'shut the door and hang your head with shame!'.
Well, we have worked at lots of events before but this one was a breath of fresh air. Only 10 miles from our HQ, friendly, amazing burgers, tea on tap and friendly people in charge & competing.
With three routes available, 47, 82 & 102 miles, there's enough for everyone and judging the 47ers that was enough! There were strong head and cross winds as well as the occasional torrential downpour.
Living up to its standards, the MuleBar gazeebo collapsed in the gusts and we de-camped to a position under the trees, right next to the bbq....
We sampled plenty of sports nutrition, energy bars, energy gels and protein bars as well as our new product called Eastern Express. Think savoury...think spicy...think one of the best flavours we have done...think about buying shed loads of them once they're released.
