just read an article on nutrition for ironman......and for the bike the said
Drink 1–1.5 litres of fluid per hour. This is two small bottles (600ml) to two large bottles (700ml) per hour, depending on climate and your perspiration rate. (Simple calculation: Weigh yourself pre- and post- ride during training. Every kilogramme lost is one small water bottle of fluid deficit, and this will negatively impact your marathon.)
even on a hot day like outlaw.there is no way i would drink over a litre an hour...in fact i only had the one drinks bottle and just change it at feed stations......so 3 litres for the whole bike plus maybe 750 ml of gels......
are they right or am I not taking in enough
