    Race Nutrtition Prep: Best Ways...

    Would like to know what you guys are doing for XC racing prep.

    12-18 miles races.

    What are you doing nutritionally/supplements, calorically etc for the last week before RACE time?

    I don't change a thing, same as before big training loads. Adequate carb load, fully hydrated.

    I've started using MRI's E02 Vmax, 3 pills every morning as recommended and 6 a day starting 4 days out from the race. Our races usually go at 6:30am, so I'm up at 5:00 am and put down a bagel with cream cheese, half an apple and half a banana. 15 minutes before race time I have a GU. Since I've started this routine, I haven't had any issues with bonking or cramping during races of that length. Results: Top 10 in 4 straight races and a 5th place in my last race.

    I wrote about what I do here:

    PaleoRacing.co.uk - paste=54, a little different from most I'd assume!
