I'm doing the first leg of the TdF on Wednesday (minus a few A roads). While it's not a race I'd like to make a good account of myself.
I'm sorted with gels I like to take on a ride (ZipVit) and usually do one an hour on 150km+ rides with a caffeine one about 90 mins from home. While the gels are good for getting carbs in, I do sometimes get an 'empty stomach' feeling. My mate suggested taking a pack of fig rolls to munch on?
Also, would be interested to hear what people eat the night before (if it even makes a difference) and in the morning? I was going to wolf down a spag bol in the evening and have a porridge at 7am for a 9.15am start.
