Personally I will be doing all liquid nutrition. I have tried foods, and they just sit in my stomach the whole time anyway. Likely a light breakfast will do some good over an hour before start time. SOLID stretching will go a long way. Loosen your IT band before you need it; perhaps a massage today or tomorrow to really push out the lactic acid for super fresh legs if you are planning on high throttle riding (I am not)

The forecast calls for 96% overcast so it should be an awesome day... don't forget that UV goes through clouds ie sunblock.
