Cytomax - :) :D
You will see a comment by Cytomax that besides being an energy drink it beats the burn ie Buffers Lactic acid production (the cause of arm pump)

PS on a normal trail ride I only use water and then use Cytomax when I Race and Train in the Gym.

Liv Tyler, but when she's not available, Isostar in powder form. You wont get it in the US but in Europe its available pretty widely. It competes head to head with Gatorade which unfortunately is available only in liquid form and is expensive as hell.

As far as hydrating, yes, drink a lot, but if you ride for many hours your body is losing minerals as it converts food to energy (andf other stuff) and if it goes on for long enough without rempalcing them you may end up suffering from cramps, amongst other ailments. A lack of magnesium in particular I think causes cramps, which water can't replace, hence the need for a fortified electrolyte drink of some sort - or eating.

Drinking is important, but on long rides eating is too. I tend to use powerbars for the longer rides and for short burst of energy 'sucre de raisin' which is concentrated dextrose? extracted from grapes/fruit. Amazing stuff - when you are well knackered a couple of these and 5-10 minutes later you feel the turbo charge kick in.

We tried rum and coke but the coke fizzed too much off the big jumps. Rum and orange juice now vitamin C with a kick.

is there a way to get rid of the plasticky taste with wooder (as we say near Philly) in the Camelbacks? is there something to put in there to keep mold or fungus from forming? my last Camelback started getting black dots inside the tube.

water in the camelback, cytomax in the canteen. the cytomax is great for preventing muscle cramps but you gotta have water also. a little tip. keep your camelback bladder in the freezer. that will keep the cruds from growing in it.


This is what I do, works great.

It adds flavor, add a little dust/mud on the nossle and it doesn't taste any better then that! :thumbsup:
Or you can mix gatorade/water 50/50.
