Tejay Van Garderen, BMC: Before a ride
Oatmeal with a handful of almonds or walnuts, a few teaspoons of molasses for the iron and taste, and raisins or dried fruit.
Chris Horner, RadioShack-Nissan: While Riding
Sandwich made with an English muffin, bacon, an over-easy egg, and a thick slice of Tillamook cheddar.
Christian Vande Velde, Garmin-Barracuda: While Riding
Serrano (Spanish cured ham) on a baguette with olive oil and tomato.
Evelyn Stevens, Specialized-Lululemon: After a Ride
Sweet potato, kale, broccoli, and roasted beets stir-fried with eggs or chicken in olive oil and coconut milk.
Taylor Phinney, BMC: After a Race
Pasta or risotto with Parmesan cheese and olive oil.
I hope that the meals of these pro riders give you some inspiration today! Thanks for reading, fellow cyclists, and as always, happy riding!
