At the first race this year at Waywayanda I didn't do well as I expected. I've been testing different powder mixes/gels. This time in the water bottle during the sport race I used Heed by Hammer Nutrition and tried a new water bottle that has a seperate container that holds the Hammer Gel and the more larger part of the bottle for the powder mix. I started to feel as though I was go to vomit, and basically hit the wall. One of the other women riders said she felt the same way, we both used the gel, I didn't drink enough water as the directions said in the use of the gel. I also had coffee in the am about 2 hours before the race (I really never drink coffee) I thought since having the flu the caffine would give me alittle boost. What do you guys drink during the races?
