These were probably the most challenging 24 hours of my life I’ve spent on the legendary Nürburgring. When your body hurts from top to the toes, your mind comes to its very limits and you just continue cycling even though you inner urge wants to quit, then you know that these hours of your life definitely belong to the category “borderline experience”.
I am often asked, how I handle my nutrition during the 24 hour races and how I keep my engine running over the entire time of the race. Therefore I want to use this blog entry to outline my nutrition and energy supply before, during and after such a race.
I've trained long und hard for this day, now it had come: The 24 hours in Kelheim had been on my agenda and I was already really excited and motivated for this event since a few weeks! I was ready to get so much more out of my mind and body.
