The Pikes Peak APEX presented by RockShox covers just over 125 miles over 4 stages, features more than 14,000 feet of climbing, and showcases four iconic Colorado Springs-area trail systems. Mountain bike stage races and multi-day adventures present unique nutrition and hydration challenges, so whether you are coming to Colorado for the Pikes Peak APEX or embarking on your own mountain bike trip, Chris Carmichael, CEO and Head Coach of CTS, has written a plan to help you fuel for success.
What do you dream about when your imagination drifts to mountain biking on a sunny afternoon when you are supposed to be working? Do you picture yourself rubbing elbows with Evelyn Dong? Can you feel the schralp of your tires carving a caramel-colored berm? Do you lose yourself in the lush green valley below as you top a mega climb?
The APEX will present unique nutrition and hydration challenges. We have partnered with the pros at CTS to offer you guidance on how to optimize your performance in September.
