ON COURSE NUTRITION
There is no success without commitment. There is no achievement without work. And for more than 40 years we have worked to support athletes, at any level, to help them improve their performances. Training alone is not enough. This is what Science says.
In the days leading up to the event, maintain a regular intake of water and mineral salts during the day, especially if you’re travelling. Check that your skin and lips aren’t dry. Keep yourself hydrated at all times - don’t wait until you’re thirsty. This is even more important if you’re not acclimatized to wherever the competition is being held.
2.WHILE CYCLING AND RUNNING
Maintain your hydration and energy levels through regular drinks and supplements: about 150 ml of water and minerals every 15-20 minutes and 30-35 g of a carb mix every 30 minutes (or 60-75 g every hour).
3. AFTER YOU FINISH, START THINKING ABOUT RECOVERY
A powder mix of carbohydrates, essential amino acids and mineral salts will help your initial recovery. But that won’t be enough: you’ll need to carry on in the hours after the event, through rehydration and consumption of additional sources of carbohydrate (including fruit) and protein.
