Don't believe them. I ate almost a whole tube on my last metric quarter century and not only did it taste terrible, it didn't help at all. Maybe if I could find some gluten free chamois cream.

My favorite CX races have beer handups that are nice, but beyond that, I typically save my drinking for once I've gotten off my bike. Don't want to spill any!
