So, yesterday I raced in a small, informal cyclo-cross race. That’s racing off-road, on a road racing bike but with mountain bike knobbly tyres. It was snowing hard and we were riding in the woods too. We invited 40 people but due to extreme softness only 7 people turned up. Cyclo-cross is a winter sport, so go figure. Anyway, when you’ve raced for an hour with snow in your face, then cycled 15 miles home with snow in the face, down your back, wet gloves, wet everything then you need SUGAR, MEAT, ALCOHOL and TEA. The four sport foods. Fucking ravenous.
