Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship

Alistair Brownlee that failed in the final 500m to win at the Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World championships today at Hyde Park.

The afternoon race often causes problems due to lack of careful planning race day nutrition.
Minute by minute hydration and nutrition is far more noticeable with blood sugars crashes and mistakes due to low levels of energy supplied to the brain. Dehydration will also stop energy release which is shown by a sudden drop in performance.

Pushing yourself as hard as possible can also cause this especially with younger athletes & triathletes.
Mark has helped many athletes with their race day nutrition plan working back from the start of the race to waking up.
