Classic situation – You get off your bike and say to yourself: I think, I’ll never do this again. And this is what happened last year after I’ve rode my last lap of the 24 hours on the race track of Zolder/Belgium. Yes, a lot can happen in one year and then happened what should happen: Also in 2018 I was standing at the starting line of the 4 km lap and even felt some anticipation with a view to the forthcoming 24 hours.
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.
Pavement that is usually full of cars and motorcycles was the setting where crazy cyclist would spend the next 24-hours round after round exploring not only their physical but also their mental limits. Last year I spend 12 hours on the 3.9 kilometer course leaving Zolder with the thought: 12 hours where pretty cool but 24 hours is not for me.
