​To perform your best during Ruby Roubaix Gravel Fondo 2022, be sure to complete your 300-500 calorie pre-race meal no less than three hours before starting. This allows time to fully process the meal so your body can devote all blood and oxygen to your physical efforts, rather than expending energy digesting your meal.
