CANNED OXYGEN HELPS RIDERS IMPROVE PERFORMANCE AND GET TO GRIPS WITH THE SPECIAL CHALLENGES OF BEACH RACING
The idea of using canned oxygen was trialled by Jack and Chris at the Weston Supermare and Le Touquet beach races last year, which have over 1,000 competitors revving high powered bikes within a relatively small space. Both riders, who competed in the top 50 for most of the race, will be using OXYfit's small canister and mask set again at Le Touquet this month.
Chris Place who rides a KTM EXC 250 says:
Jack Edwards races a Honda CRF 250 and agrees:
Stuart Place is former Chairman of the Norfolk and Suffolk Junior Motorcycle Club, a member of the ACU (Auto Cycle Union) and a trained Clark of the Course who regularly oversees Motocross events. He proactively supports the general health and fitness benefits of OXYfit's medically-pure canned oxygen and says:
'Motocross is one of most physically demanding sports in the world. It's like rugby on bikes and competitors need to be extremely fit and healthy to succeed. I fully endorse a programme using something natural like oxygen which benefits peak fitness prior to a race. We've seen a real difference in general energy and breathing levels from using the OXYfit canned oxygen, especially at the beach races where there are a phenomenal amount of bikes giving off fumes in a small area. I can see this being a performance booster that will take off in the sport generally and I know Chris and Jack will be using it in 2009.'
Both Chris and Jack have been competing in Moto Cross racing for nine years. Chris has achieved expert status after gaining points in Eastern Centre club riding. Jack also rides at Eastern Centre club level and last year won the most improved rider award in the Norwich and District club.
