Thanks but I'm an organic/fresh fanatic :o No way I would eat or drink powder/tabs/gel I don't know where they come from ;D
But when I plan to ride hard and long, I found a very good site that teaches you how to make your own gel and purée.
It is quick to do, keep well in the fridge and cheap.

Unfortunately it is only in French  ???... Google translate made significant progress recently, so I post it anyway.

I make this purée, the sweet one: http://www.diet-sport-coach.com/pages/content/produits-energetiques/compote-energie-maison-version-sucree-et-salee.html#L8uBQtspGfQH28Cy.99

And this gel: http://www.diet-sport-coach.com/pages/content/produits-energetiques/gel-energetique-booster.html#u7eu5MYuZfcrWG54.99

I pour them in silicone bottles like these: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-Shipping-3pcs-Lot-Food-Grade-Silicone-Leak-Proof-Design-Travel-Tube-Squeeze-Refillable-Bottle-Empty/32373315663.html
That I put in my back pockets.
And they are easy to clean and reusable.

Alternating 1 purée / 1 gel each half hour.

Hi
How did the tyres set up tubeless and have you ridden wet tree roots or just dry hard pack.... How are they for sidewall protection. Im interested as 190g's a tyre lighter than my race king protections.

Thanks
Rick








One week ago I competed in this season's first race and finished 33/281 overall and 8/24 in my age group on 55 km/1390 meters of climbing in 2:19 hours. Not that bad for almost no training this year so far..
The bike performed great, I chose a 34 teeth chainring instead of the 36 teeth because of the alpine terrain. And I tested new tires from Michelin, the Wild Race'r Ultimate in 29 x 2.0 both @ 470 grams. The tire is similar to the Continental Race King, but provides much more grip even if it is so narrow.
The next race will be on the 17th of june. 60 km and 1650 meters of climbing, with lots of trails, so I will miss a full suspension bike there  :'(  ;)

On my side, I've been using this as a replacement for Gatorade or any other drinks from the market this year with great results so far.

3 1/2 cup of water
1/4 cup of orange juice
1/4 cup of maple sirup
3 table spoon of lemon juice
1/4 tea spoon of salt

To be honest with you, the tire sucks.. The second race I rode them, I had one flat on the front tire and the rear tire was soft at the finish line. Protection = none. Nice experiment, but not good for racing. Also on wet roots, you might have too less grip. Tubeless setup was very easy, like I know it only from Schwalbe tires.
I switched back to the Rocket Rons 2.1 LiteSkin. Best compromise of good grip, easy setup, low rolling resistance and just enoug protection.
