    You need a bike trailer to carry the food. 🙂

  2. Looks great, hope all goes well with the race. With this fuel inside you your sure to do well!

    That’s a decent breakfast. What are you having for lunch?

  4. As someone just getting into endurance events, I was wondering, how you carried all this food with you. Was there a support crew?

    • For most 24-hour mountain bike races you race in a loop that takes about an hour and you pass through an area where you set up your own support, or if you are lucky enough, someone is there to help you. I’m definitely not carrying all of this stuff!

    Matt, I like your food choices, wish I was a better planner, would have liked to have had some fig bars myself. Opted for natural peanut butter and jam sandwiches in the pit with Hammer SE and electrolytes in the bottles. Thanks for offering me some of your Ritz crackers
    Good race,

  6. Matt, What would be your go to race food when you need to carry it with you such as a long distance triathlon?
