Energy gels, bars, chews and my tum haven’t always got along. In at least two races, I’ve grabbed gels that were on offer only to experience horrendous nausea and cramps – so I now choose them with care.
The last few I’ve tried have left me doubled up but I did have success last weekend with SIS gels so will give them another go.
Sutton Runner has also given me some samples of Torq gel – a brand new product which they say is as close to natural as you can get.
I’ve got three different flavours to try on my next long bike ride… and will report back. Watch this space.
