Ya'll are worried about the falling, but that's not the part that hurts. It's the sudden deceleration! Therefore, ride as slow as I do, and falling is a non issue!

Do you really need to eat during a 50-mile or less race?

I see that an upcoming rr has a feed zone, but the whole race is only 48 miles. Does anyone really "eat" during that time or are we talking about grabbing extra water and a gel or two?

Thanks!
