1. Stay hydrated
Regular fluid intake is vital to keep up your performance.
2. Eat pre-ride
2 hours prior to exercise is optimum, but watch you don’t OVEREAT.
3. Eat regularly during longer exercise
Your body can store enough energy for 90 minutes of strenuous exercise and 60-90g is recommended per hour to keep your stores topped up.
4. Practice nutrition strategy
Simples. Don’t try a random product you’ve never eaten before, your tummy will thank you for this.
Replace your spent energy with protein and carbohydrates within an hour of your training.
