Motocross is physically difficult. In fact, it's just plain hard. As with all endurance activities, your body needs a pile of fuel to burn to avoid the dreadful bonk. Without getting into nutritional theories and complicated diet plans, here's the idea: Drink plenty of water, more so than you think you should, and eat simple, nutritious meals throughout the day. If you're working out or training for your racing experience, you should already be eating right-cutting as much junk food and simple sugars (candy, soda, etc.) from your diet as possible. Eat complex carbs the days before an event and keep it simple on race day. You're going to be a little nervous, and the last thing you want is a stomach full of bacon and eggs cramping up on you. Popular prerace breakfasts include cereal, oatmeal, fruit and toast or bagels spread with peanut butter and honey. Lunch should be the same-simple and nutritious with more water than you think you should drink. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a DR staff favorite (include honey for an extra boost), as are Clif Bars and PowerBars for snacks. Some people down "energy" drinks and chow on caffeine-injected energy bars, but you're better off sticking to sandwiches and water. Replenish after a moto with a sports drink (we like to dilute them with water). Stay hydrated and fed and you'll be strong all moto long.
