Nutrition Library: Carb News You Can Use

Monday, July 13, 2015 4:50:20 PM America/New_York

Most endurance athletes practice some form of carbo-loading on a daily basis as means to prevent glycogen depletion, aka “the wall” or “bonking”, during longer training bouts.

Every athlete should know how much they sweat in order to have a hydration target.

All the elements of a world class endurance mountain bike racer have been fine tuned and optimized, except one critical piece of the puzzle - race nutrition.Read More
