Also, go for 750ml bottles at start and put an extra in your middle back pocket.
Also, as pastronef says, you do NOT wan to stop at any feedstops, keep going and get some loved ones to pass you bottles, food and gels. If you stop you're done for.
Here's my trace from 2011, http://connect.garmin.com/activity/90804733 It was 45-50 kph at the start but the hardest part was to pick my way along the traffic and people having lunch at street cafes. I didn't enjoy that.

What do you do when nature inevitably calls somewhere over the span of 296 km? Perhaps you stop only for output, but not for input? Or do you answer nature's call while riding? I believe the pros generally stop and water the daisies, do they not, with the occasional on-bike relief?Frans wrote:Also, as pastronef says, you do NOT wan to stop at any feedstops, keep going and get some loved ones to pass you bottles, food and gels.

I figured it would probably be fast at the start but I thought it would sort its self out fairly quickly not carry on to Tuchino. While the pace isn't really a worry for me, I was looking to .... shall we say "enjoy the course" (take it easy.... be a bit lazy). I might just stick the riding I was intending to do around the Langhe and the Valtellina.

If anyone is doing a bit of riding in that Langhe area and would like an intro to a wine maker or two please PM me i'm happy to help where I can.
