Nutrition for the Brompton World Championships

I have received lots of advice about my woeful shortcomings regarding nutrition.

My naive, have a Mars Bar or Snicker has been greeted with incredulous looks to open pointing and laughing.

Luckily I have been given a few pointers. I have been told that drinking lots of water during the week before an event is a good idea. Pasta the night before am event provides a slow release of energy. Porridge and a banana for breakfast and a banana on route, again gives this oh so important slow release.

This all sounds pretty good to me however anyone out there reading this who begs to differ or can offer even more hints and tips, please feel free to post a comment.


  1. My emergency rations of choice are Jelly Babies - when you are running on reserve, they taste nice as well ;-)

  2. Now that is an excellent idea. I will deinately think about at for when I'm hurtling round at the BWC.

  3. I was thinking more along the lines of a couple of pies.....

  4. I love the simplicity of a couple of pies.
