Karsten Madsen

HoneyMaxx works for Karsten Madsen - Professional Triathlete. Think it will work for you?


Karsten is a Pro Triathlete racing in Xterra races around the world. He's been involved in triathlon his whole life.  At four years old his his parents entered him in his first Kids of Steel race; at the time there were no age groups for him to compete in - he raced with the 6-9 year old boys. After that he fell in love with the sport and continued on to race as a junior elite. By the age of 16 he could ride with some of the top Pro triathletes in the sport.

Four years ago, Karsten turned pro and since then he has been constantly riding the fastest bike split in his races paired with a strong swim and killer run to back it up.

Karsten's main focus is off-road triathlon, but he also throws in a few 70.3 and 5150 races to stay fresh.

At only 21 years old, he has many more years ahead of and tons of time for improvement.

We met Karsten just after the launch of HoneyMaxx. His current sports drink just wasn't working for him. He tried and loved HoneyMaxx. Karsten has been training and racing with HoneyMaxx since and has posted a 2nd place at the Canadian National Off-Road Triathlon Championships while fueled by HoneyMaxx.

This year Karsten started a racing team called Turnpike Racing, check them out here. Karsten coaches the team and runs clinics to teach his athletes how to perform to their potential on the swim, bike and run. Through Turnpike Racing, Karsten also runs training camps in Whistler and California.
