5 tips to make you a faster rider

Always eat before starting your morning training. Sleeping depletes the liver’s store of glycogen, which is the major store of carbohydrate for blood sugar regulation. When this is reduced, your blood sugar level drops and fatigue sets in, making concentration difficult – particularly disadvantageous if you’re using your training session to learn a new technique.

Fueling long sessions is often the most difficult. You’re out training for such a long time, often without access to proper foods – limited by what you can carry in your pockets.
