Any thoughts on whether just drinking Maurten 360 (or the SiS version) would be sufficient on an epic ride, without drinking just water from a separate bottle?
From Nate’s experience at Leadville and from my own experience using Tailwind, it seems that simply drinking Maurten or TW may lead to dehydration, especially on warm days. I remember Coach Chad’s comment on the podcast about how Nate might have had difficulty with the warm Maurten perhaps due to its caloric density toward the end of the LV race.
This makes me think that it may not be good to rely soley on Maurten or TW for both nutrition and hydration and that it may be advisable to have a water bottle to provide some additional hydration.
Any thoughts on this matter?
