What a pro cyclist eats during The Women’s Tour queen stage

Post-race
Directly after the race I have my SANAS Carbomix recovery shake, usually during my warm down.

Then during the transfer I will eat a proper meal. We are very lucky to have post-race food made for us by the soigneurs. This will usually be a carbohydrate source with other tasty things to make it easy to eat! So for example, a wrap with rice or chicken or hummus in, or pasta or rice with pesto and mozzarella.

Transfers were pretty long so I’d also tend to bring extra snacks with me. This could be a bread roll with peanut butter & jam, bananas, pre made porridge or even leftover rice cakes from the race.

Dinner
Most dinners were the same each stage at the race, but usually pretty good. It tended to be a big plate of pasta with some form of tomato sauce, then chicken. Also always some bread on the side.

I’m also someone who can never go to bed without something sweet, so I’ll always have a bowl of cereal with yoghurt after dinner or even another slice of bread with something sweet on.
