    Watching the coverage and the announcer states that "a lot of the guys are running COKE and water" in reference to what was in their camelbaks. Is that some sort of joke or is it some sort of extreme enduro secret for keeping glucose and sodium levels up?

    You didn't see the video? It was that guy who was waddling around before the race and had the special seat with the two huge cut outs in it!

    It's a South African thing! Darryl mentioned it.
    The water removes the CO2 and it quenchers a thirst really well.
    But the taste stays in the camelbak for quite some time. It works for me.
