Race Day - Pre-race prep

Eat Right, Ride Hard

Everyone is going to need to do a little testing to see what foods are best for them.  I like to use a few tried and true lessons.

1 - Eat 4 hours before the race, as you shouldn't be hungry before the race.  I usually eat a large meal, quantity being something you will have to work out on your own.

2 - What to eat?  I like a big bowl of pasta!  Most important is to eat something with a good glycemic index (slow sugar release), such as pasta, and food that dosen't upset your stomach.  Heartburn sux during a race.

3 - About 45 min before start time, eat an energy gel and then another right before the start and send it hard!
