While nothing will replace proper training and preparation, e load can help to combat the effects of the sustained effort of the Keskinada, or any other endurance event. What is e load? It is the world's first fully customizable sports drink and electrolyte loader, designed by Dr. Douglas W. Stoddard, a Medical Doctor and Sport Medicine Specialist practicing in Toronto. eLoad consists of two components. One is the BASE formula, which contains medical grade carbohydrate in the form of dextrose, Rehydration Salts, MultiCitrate, and Vitamin C. The second is sold separately as ZONE CAPS. These contain additional amounts of Rehydration Salts and MultiCitrate. Customization is accomplished by adding ZONE CAPS according to individual requirements.
eLoad is particularly useful in preventing muscle cramps brought about by dehydration and electrolyte imbalances, as well as sudden losses of energy brought about by low blood-sugar (The infamous BONK!).
Members of XC Ottawa have been using eLoad with success for the past two racing seasons, and have been extremely impressed with the product. What is more, the flavour is excellent! One thing is for sure: XC Ottawa will be using e load at the Keskinada this year!
eLoad is easily available in the Ottawa Gatineau region at both Greg Christie's Ski and Cycleworks and Bushtukah.
