If you plan on taking part in this weekend’s GO Outdoors Mountain Mayhem then you will want to ensure you’re properly fueled up. This is where OTE Sports steps in.
The GO Outdoors Mountain Mayhem kicks off this weekend and will see riders lap the Mayhem course as often as they can over 24 hours, you can get an idea of what the course is like in our Mountain Mayhem Course Preview here.
For the fittest of riders one lap could take as little as 40 minutes but on average an hour seems to be the figure most people will be lapping at, but regardless of your times and speed you are going to have to ensure that you’re properly fed and hydrated during the event.
Mountain Mayhem Sponsors, OTE Sports, suggests that riders need to take on board 6-80g of carbohydrate per lap to remain hydrated, even if sitting out a lap or at the end of the event, riders have to maintain a constant flow of hydration to recover correctly.
OTE Sports Energy Drink, which provides 40g of carbohydrate per serving, is the suggest option for hydration at Mountain Mayhem 2017 and the OTE Energy gels that provide 20g of carbohydrates can be consumed to make up the rest of your 60-80g per lay quota. For those of you who prefer solids rather than gels OTE has a range of Energy Bars too.
OTE Sports will be present at the Mountain Mayhem where their range of Energy Drinks, Energy Gels, Energy and Protein Bars plus Hydro Tabs will be available to purchase, what’s more OTE is offering a 30% discount on site and online when using the discount code: Mayhem17. This code can also be used on the OTE Sports website: www.
If you’re unsure how to use the different products available from OTE Sports, the team is also on hand to offer advice and suggestions too.
