How to Fuel Your Body for a 12 hour MTB race
- Keep fluid intake during exercise between 550-800/ml per hour.
- Keep calorie consumption to a maximum of 300 cal / hour. (1260 kj/ Hr)
- Measure exactly what calories/kj you are consuming. Taking too much can be worse than not enough!
- Separate your hydration from your nutrition on the bike to stop confusion
- Only consume complex carbohydrates until the last 20-30 minutes of the race.
- Use some form of extra electrolyte supplementation. The longer and hotter your event the more you will need this.
Your Nutrition Plan for a MTB Race
Option 1: Perpetuem
- Perpetuem. Some may prefer this. If so use a 4 hour bottle and place approx 7-8 scoops (see directions on quantity) in the bottle. Divide the bottle into 4 and consume 1/4 of a bottle/hour. Pre-mix bottle night before and keep in fridge.
- Take 550-800ml water per hour.
- Add 1-3 / hour. Repeat every hour on bike.
- Perpetuem is a total fuel – you will not need to fuel with anything else.
- Start with 1 bottle HEED (2 scoops – 200 calories) drink 1 before exchanging bottles.
- Also take 1 . Total Calories = 300 max.
- Add 1-3 Endurolytes / hour. Repeat for 2nd hour on bike.
- 3rd hour take 2 HammerGels per hour.

When finished refuel within 20-30 minutes with Recoverite (2-3 scoops)
