What should I eat the night before a cycle race?
Foods like pasta, breads and rice should be on your dinner plate to get enough glycogen stored in your muscles. Also include some green veggies and a handful of chicken or fish. My favorite pre-race meal is a BBQ salmon fillet, about a cup (cooked) of brown rice, and something like asparagus as a veggie.
How do I prepare for 100km bike ride?
