In order that's water, electrolytes, both sugars and proteins. It's no coincidence that charliefederer's article states exactly this mix just as I had on the previous page. Another very useful addition is for recovery/changeovers, chocolate milk. You'll be hard pressed to find a better post-workout drink.
Would he have adapted that regimen if he was cycling 100 miles a day for say two weeks?
