Food and Drink for 4.5 hr MTB Race

What does everyone recommend for some food to eat during a 50 mi mtb race? The average finishing times are between 4 and 5 hours. I have been reading that for long races such as these one must ingest 30-80 grams worth of carbs at least... Is gatorade enough to drink?
