Do More Carbs = Better Cycling Performance?

Published on April 23rd 2023


Can Conor eat 200g of carbohydrate per hour on a ride? It's what the pros do, as he recently found out in our deep dive video with Bora-Hansgrohe nutritionist Tim Podlogar. So, should we all be eating more carbs when cycling? Conor and Manon find out by going on a ride where Conor eats 200g carbs per hour and Manon fuels normally. Who will be freshest at the end?
