  1. Nutrition-CarboLoader
  2. Breakfast before the start
  3. Meal During (Every DSP)
  4. Recovery Food afterwards

Nutrition/Carboloader: 3 days before:
1 scoop EnduraShake in 200mls water at 10h00, 15h00 and before bed. (Continue eating your normal meals)

BREAKFAST Before the Start (of Each Day):
2 scoops EnduraShake in 400ml water, 45 minutes before the start.

On the LONGER days (Longer than 5 hours): EVERY ~3.5 hours or EVERY DSP: 2 scoops EnduraShake in 400ml water.

Recovery food after: 2 scoops EnduraShake in 400ml afterwards, and 2 scoops again before bed.

Because of the intense nature of Enduro Riding, together with the extremely high-kilojoule consumption, we recommend that you use EnduraPower together with GT Gel while you are riding.

(EnduraPower is mixed into your hydration pack; whilst GT Gel is decanted into the little 2-stroke bottle, which you sip intermittently).

  1. EnduraPower (high electrolytes, blend of stable carbs).
    This powder goes in your hydration pack: 6 scoops in a 3 litre hydration pack.
    We recommend 2 flavours for Enduros: Neutral Quench and Lemon-Aid. Choose your flavours wisely – be flavour smart!
    Neutral Quench tastes like water. It has a smidgen of caffeine, equivalent to a cup of tea)
    Lemon-Aid is a VERY light flavour. (NO caffeine).
    Both have no colourants. You can mix it up with Tangerine or Berry flavours, but keep to 6 scoops for 3 litres.
    Hydrate with EnduraPower according to bodyweight: For enduro riding, this has been highly recommended: Bodyweight x 10ml or 11ml /hr. (Although, this may vary according to personal preference).
    For example, if you weigh 90kgs, then you should drink 900ml -1 litre per hour. Your 3 litre hydration pack should last you ~3.5 hours.
  2. GT Gel (high electrolytes, blend of stable carbs, BCAAs).
    GT Gel is formidable with preventing cramps and maintaining performance with a high heart-rate, when racing in extreme heat.It is used ALONG WITH with the EnduraPower, like so:
    Fill the little decanting bottle (aka the 2-stroke bottle) with GT Gel and take a sip intermittently throughout the ride/eventTake a swig before the start and then throughout the event whenever you have a gap:
    For instance, whenever there is a bottle-neck, or you’re picking your lines, or you’re waiting for another rider, then take a sip. …
    Remember to use the GT Gel in addition to drinking the EnduraPower which is in your hydration pack (at the rate prescribed above).
    GT Gel is low flavour, with a soft texture, so very easy to swallow.
    When used in conjunction with EnduraPower, one filled little decanting bottle filled with GT Gel (110mls) should last you ~ 5-6 hours of riding, depending on the intensity. (Remember that GT Gel is used in addition to EnduraPower in your hydration pack and remember to always hydrate as prescribed above.).
  3. PaceLyte = High electrolytes.  OPTIONAL!… but really good if you’re a chronic cramper or a larger athlete > 95kgs
    Simply add 1-2 teaspoons of PaceLyte to the EnduraPower in your 3 litre hydration pack.
    Many riders like to take 1 teaspoon, the night before a hard ride/event. You can also drink 1 teaspoon early in the morning before the start; or add a spoon to your tripper.
    PaceLyte is also super if you wish to replace lost electrolytes after a hectic ride/event – Add one teaspoon to a glass of chilled water and drink afterwards.
    PaceLyte has NO flavour, no colourants. Absolutely refreshing and thirst-quenching!
    What is PaceLyte and how do I use it?

Note: EnduraPower, GT Gel and PaceLyte are designed for racing in heat!
The sodium and electrolyte content of all 3 formulas, as well as in the Souties (see below) significantly reduces risk of hyponatremia. (aka over-hydration)
