  • That is seriously bad packaging choice - after 120 miles, most people are so wasted they couldn't tell the difference between decent club kit and censored club kit [:o)]

    I honestly reckon I'd scoff that aswell...thats really dangerous...i've never seen degreaser in those packages before...and you know what its like on a hard ride...you dont even stop to taste the thing...you just squeeze it down...glad i wasn't on the dragon.

    P.s maybe taste better than those awful SIS gelpacks right enough[:D]

    agree it is a bad design and would be an easy mistake to make in the circumstances, but why are people drinking gels at the end of the ride anyway?

    nutritionally, gels are not the best thing to consume at the end of the session - they are great for giving you a hit that lasts 30 minutes, but after a ride you want a recovery drink or something with some protein in it.

    That reminds me of some of the freebie stuff that gets given away with race packs at the granfondos. All those little subsidiary sponsors and their non-cycling products... not understanding Italian it could just as easily be a sachet of isotonic powder or a packet of soap powder to wash my kit in after the ride.

    Quite true but as I was 175 miles from home with no access to my fridge, milk and whey protein recovery drink and no other drinks at the HQ I though a gel might be better than nothing.

    You're trying to trick us as the cleaner probably tastes better than the blackcurrant gel (orange is "okay"). I've recently tried the Torq bars and they must be rubbish as they taste quite nice - although I did do a PB in the 25 (no I'm not telling you what, I've still very slow).
    Never order anti-pasta to arrive at the same time as pasta.
