Hi, I am reasonably fit, have been riding Sportives and similar for a few years and thought i had my nutrition reasonably well organised. recently , although did happen a few times last year , i have been suffering with quite bad stomach discomfort after the first couple of hours of relatively intense cycling. it is not quite nausea or a sickness feeling however feels like bad indegestion and that i have a 'ball' / heavy, churning feeling in my stomach. it does improve with eating and i am aware with adrenelin etc excitement i sometimes find it difficult to eat but always have breakfast although sometimes only 1 to 2 hours before the start of the event. it really impacts on my ride and is annoying. i have thought it could be dehydration or certain caffine containing gels reacting badly, any thoughts or similar experiences ?? Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. References:- https://www.bikeradar.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=12855227 Online Video Production Service Thanks!
