The best mix drink not from a bar

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been a racing/riding mountain and road bikes for decade. I've used everything from green tea to the expensive bike shop only concoctions. I'd settled on simple Gatorade powder for the past few years because it's cheap and accessible. After racing the Park City Point 2 Point, a seven hour MTB race I literally felt burned in the room of my mouth. I switched to Skratch after lots of recommendations from other racers. I will never, ever go back to Haterorade. Skratch is light on the sugar and the taste. You can drink it all day and not feel like you dropped a pixie stick in your mouth. It keeps a steady dose of energy going down your body without crashing. This is a breakthrough in drink mix because it feels simple, and just works, but we all know that is the toughest to perfect.
