Raceday is fun and the final test that takes place at the end of your training. You’ve tested every food combination and fluid type known to man. Many pieces of nutrition you simply can’t stand, while others might turn your stomach into a twisted knot in seconds. You’ve unclipped your shoes yards before the finish line and have had your tires pumped to a specific PSI.
To go along with all these specifics, athletes have many sayings for raceday. One that seems to stand out, “Nothing new on raceday”, means that no matter what you stick to the plan. But sometimes you just can’t help yourself. That flat Coke or chicken broth might simply sound amazing. In these times we tend to forget the mantra and go right for it.
