Since it's XELA iconic!

Hey Xela,

What do you eat/drink the week before a big ride and the morning before race day. I'm looking for some tips.

Also I think I'm going to pick me up a feedzone book later today.

I don't change much with my eating. Maybe a bit less pizza and beer. I've had a pretty poor diet since Iowa, so I am attempting to get back to eating better.

But, the main thing I am concentrating on is making sure to stay hydrated and getting some electrolytes in each day. It looks like it is going to be fairly warm out there.

So that's why Xela always carry a lighter in his jersey pocket even though he doesn't smoke. Now I know how he can climb like a mountain goat on that bike of his. When he needs a turbo charge up the hill, he just light them up and let go :D.

Touche` or should I say Tooshe`?

I scrambled around my house gathering things for this weekend. I even semi loaded the car, or at least the trunk anyways.

I see the forecast says 40% rain now vs the 20% we had earlier this week.

Ouch, Ryno! Here's hoping the forecast changes for the better between now and then!
