Fuelling correctly isn't always easy – especially when you're going flat out in an event that you've targeted for ages. But, it is important, and, it will help you to perform better in your next event or training session.
We've actually had a few requests for this video, so here's Matt's guide to fuelling correctly before and during your next sportive. You might recognise the two guys he's riding with – this was filmed at Mark Cavendish's Rise Above event in August 2016, which our partners, Science in Sport, sponsored.
