NUTRITIONAL TIPS


It is hard work consuming upwards of 6000 calories durning a training day, so putting together a daily balance diet along with nutritional training plan will make the difference in your performance.

During breakfast and dinner, you should try to incorporate foods such as carbohydrates from potatoes,rice, pasta, cereal, whole grain breads, and fruits and vegetables. Protein sources include eggs, meat, chicken, and yogurt, etc.

On the bike, riders eat a mixture of real food, peanut butter and jelly, energy bars, and gels.
.
Athletes aim to ingest 300-400+ calories per hour while racing. While some of this comes from the aforementioned foods, the rest comes from sports drinks.

With the extremely hot weather Athletes are drinking between 2-3 bottles per hour on the throughout your training, and it is important for about half of that fluid to be sports drink. Not only do sports drinks provide CHO, they are also an important source of electrolytes.

The central nervous system (CNS) controls every nerve impulse in the body, and needs sodium, potassium, and calcium to conduct electrical signals that contract muscles and run all bodily functions. You lose a lot of electrolytes through sweat, as evidenced by the white crusty residue you may notice on your clothing and body.

To prevent muscle cramps and more severe CNS consequences from losing too many electrolytes, athletes try to drink at least 1 bottle of fluid per hour.

The important thing in choosing a sports drink is making sure it agrees with your stomach. Some drinks might be too sweet or syrupy and leave a rider feeling bloated. Part of your training should be to test the products you will use durning the race while training to see if it is the product for you.
