Cycling nutrition is intensely personal. What works for one person could cause stomach pain for another. What keeps one person hydrated might not prevent cramps in another. That’s why many of us find a few products and flavors that work well with our bodies, or simply just taste great, and stick with them.
But it’s still a constant game of fine-tuning your personal nutrition strategy, not to mention the ever-looming risk of getting bored of the same old flavors. That’s why we’re always keen to check out some of the latest nutrition offerings, be they simply new flavors of existing products, or brand-new formulations to take in those calories and electrolytes.
