Food glorious drink

1966 Giro d'Italia...
(l to r): Motta, Andorni, Anquetil and Gimondi.






Food... I think of it often. More so before, during and after a ride. But what does a professional cyclist eat during a hard three week race?

Here's an article of what Trek Factory Racing riders typically pound down in just one day in the Tour de France - the calories per day are equally astounding.

Before today's high science diet of gels, power bars and electrolyte drinks, pro riders ate huge quantities of high protein, gluten rich, high carbohydrate meals...



Felice Gimondi digs in for a high protein meal, 1966 Giro d'ltalia.














Fruit stand raiding.










My favorite...

Cafe raid included whatever cool 'beverage' the rider could swipe.





Informative video on fueling like a pro. This is a good guideline for all cyclists...
