Rob I think I read recently that a guide for nutrition is to have a gram of carbs per hour for every kg of body weight. So for you it would be 86g of carbs per hour.
I'm sure that's just a guide so the best advice would be practice in training and see what works for you.
I'm gonna try and head over to Bolton this Saturday to ride some of the course. Does anybody fancy joining me? I could do with a guide Andy if you are free!
I'm easy on how far or fast we go, I'm not a great cyclist so it can be a nice easy pace. I thought maybe park at the swim venue then cycle up and do one lap and then back to the car. I guess that would be about 80 miles but I don't mind making it a bit less if that sounds like too much.
Double T- I did Austria in 2012 so I might be able to compare the two after this weekend.
