    Take Out Pizza as Race Fuel

    Just a question if this would be a bad idea.
    For 48 hours prior to a big cycling event of lots of endurance.

    Would consuming a pizza from Pizza Hut or any chain be a bad idea?
    Would those types of pizza be ok source of carbs or the fat content too high?

    Thanks

    48 hours is a long time!

    Do this:

    - Eat the pizza. Note down the calories. Let's say x calories.
    - Wait for two hours
    - Go and ride (or alternatively run) x calories worth.

    PS: A one hour run at 9 minute/mile pace burns approx. 1000 calories.
