When preparing for race day it is important to know what fuels your body needs and to practice with those fuels. It is all about consistency and balance.
For endurance rides your body needs consistent complex carbohydrates, water, and electrolytes.
There are a wide variety of products that can provide these combinations, but one that leads the way in providing COMPLEX carbohydrates that will not drop your blood sugar, full spectrum amino acids, and a full line of GLUTEN FREE products - Hammer Nutrition!

HEED SPORTS DRINK
Heed is a combination of complex carbohydrates and electrolytes with a full spectrum of amino acids and no citric acids! Enjoy Heed throughout your workout or race!
Cramping is your body's final warning signal that you're on empty electrolyte-wise. You should use this product before, during, and after and endurance activity to PREVENT cramping. It contains no refined sugars or artificial sweeteners
This is a quick and easy way to get electrolytes without the taste and without the calories. You should take 1 capsule per 50-60 pounds of body weight 30-60 minutes prior to exercise, each hour during exercise, and one dose immediately following exercise.
Contains long-chain complex carbohydrates for smooth, consistent energy release. There's only a trace of sugar, so Hammer Gel doesn't set off wild insulin spikes causing "sugar high" and "sugar crash." You should consume about one gel per hour during endurance activities
