How To Use
It is hard to recommend a singular nutritional strategy, and more specifically a carbohydrate goal per hour, without knowing what each athlete can tolerate. Our fuel requirements during training and racing far exceeds our ability to absorb ingested carbohydrates. Generally speaking, most individuals will be able to tolerate 60g CHO per hour, some may be able to tolerate 90g CHO per hour. We know from recent research that has been published, that with gut training you may even be able to absorb up to 120g per hour. The only way to establish what is best for you is to train your gut and see what amount of carbohydrate you are able to tolerate.
