Training Tips

Warren McDonald’s 5 Tips to get you through the Buderim9

  1. Have a Plan – There are some great coaches here on the coast that could help you plan for the day whether it’s to get the best times out of yourself or to simply finish and have fun climbing!
  2. Knowing the Climbs – Either ticking one or two off a week during the week or on a weekend will help you prepare mentally and physically for the challenge ahead.
  3. Get a Service – There are some great shops with great mechanics and experience on the coast to help you. Having a clean bike in great working order will ensure you have a great day out.   Nothing worse than seeing someone or yourself with gears jumping or wheels rubbing. If you do get a service, make sure it’s done in plenty of time to try it all out before the day.
  4. The Right Equipment – Make sure you have the gearing, enough food and fluid to help you through the 9. Having the right gears/cassette with climbing gearing will enable you to set the rhythm early in the climbs to ensure you have the strength to finish strong instead of trying to muscle it and not being able to finish. Consistently drink and eat between the climbs to help keep the energy levels high.
  5. Have Fun – It’s a great event so be positive and have fun and support everyone and say thanks to all who have helped make it a great event.
