So I'm thinking it's not so much the Gatorade as it is the carbohydrate in it. Perhaps it's got something to do with how I metabolize the carbs. Has anyone else experienced this?

I can rip some fierce ones myself. I've been known to stir up a race pretty good. I haven't yet figured out how to use it to my advantage in the races yet...
