How to Fuel Your Body for a 4-8 hour + MTB race

  1. Keep fluid intake during exercise between 550-800/ml per hour.
  2. Keep calorie consumption to a maximum of 300 cal / hour. (1260 kj/ Hr)
  3. Measure exactly what calories/kj you are consuming. Taking too much can be worse than not enough!
  4. Separate your hydration from your nutrition on the bike to stop confusion
  5. Only consume complex carbohydrates until the last 20-30 minutes of the race.
  6. 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

Hammer recommends using either H.E.E.D or Perpeutem in combination with HammerGel and Endurolytes.

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.

Option 2: HEED – Gels

  • 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.
  • Add 1-3 Endurolytes.

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