Personally i like about $4 worth of chips, piece of fish, chiko roll and a large chocolate milkshake. I don't win many races though :?

You should eat what you normally eat. Just keep it light and give yourself a 1 1/2 - 2 hours so that it settles down. Drink plenty of water.

You will not need feeding during the race and you probably won't need to drink either if you have been hydrating well previously.

as per redbull, eat normally and make sure you drink plenty of water during the day.

Have a choclate donut an hour before the race....don't know if it will help, but I really love donuts. :D

Good luck and have fun.
I ride several bicycles, but not at once.

on top of lunch, usually have yoghart and apple about 1.5 hour before the race.
as for water, i don't go through more than 300ml of water in a 40min+2lap race. so i suggest only bring a 400ml bottle with you for the race.

Don't flog yourself on Thursday if you are early on in your training block. Rest your legs on Friday (or go for a gentle stroll) then on Saturday a light ride.

Well now you've done it C grade next week for you.

The only thing you should be eating during the race is your handle bars.
