How to Make Your Own Sports Food & Drink – Nutritional Insight from Pro Teams

By Coach John Hughes

You’ve probably wondered what the riders in the pro peloton eat and drink during a stage race. Coach John Hughes researched what Team Sky, Garmin-Cervélo and RadioShack riders consume before, during and after a stage and discussed the results with cycling nutrition experts. The answers may surprise you in terms of the variety and seemingly unusual nature of some of the food and drink. But the findings hold lessons and benefits for cyclists at all levels. We all require energy and replenishment of lost minerals and nutrients when we ride. Eating and drinking like the pros offers us the same nutritional benefits, which we can customize to our own needs – typically at a fraction of the cost of commercial sports food and drink, if we choose to make our own.

Coach Hughes worked with a professor of nutrition and an expert on hydration and electrolytes (both experts are cyclists) in creating recipes for both sports drinks and food. They’re easy to make, with known, unprocessed ingredients, and can be tailored to your specific taste and needs.

Eating & Drinking Like the Pros is available as part of the Summer Riding Bundle (includes Cycling in the Heat, Parts 1 and 2, and Preventing and Treating Cramps).
