Nutrition advice and product usage for triathlon obviously varies depending on the distance of the event you are competing in.
The basic information of supplementing 60-70g carbohydrate per hour still remains and is what you should aim to be doing. This should be taken in as much fluid as necessary to remain hydrated and will obviously vary depending on weather conditions. It is definitely recommended to sip at regular intervals rather than take large doses.
As with all endurance events it is important to ensure you are well carbohydrate loaded and hydrated in the days preceding the event.
A couple of strong points that need emphasizing are to practice in training what you intend to do on race day, and don't over eat/drink on the bike.
Sip a 6-8% solution of either PSP22 or Go throughout your warm up and race preparation. If it is particularly hot then use Go rather than PSP22. Take a Go Gel 5 minutes before the start of the race. During the bike leg carry a bottle of Go or PSP22 at 6-8% and aim to drink about 200ml. This should ideally provide enough energy to see you through the 5Km run, in case of emergencies it is always worth having a Go Gel next to your running shoes that you can take onto the run course. Always ensure you remain hydrated throughout the event and drink on the run if necessary.
