Nutrition strategy

Is it possible to pre-calculate the carbs that will be used during a workout? Would be nice for optimization the nutrition strategy!!!

Have a look at similar previous activities?

There are general guidelines of 60-120g of carbs per hour if the ride is over 1.5 hours. In general the total calories/energy expenditure is greatly in excess of the calories from the above carbs in take. In general Iā€™d suggest trying with more carbs first as I understand there are limited downsides and then see how you get on and try adjusting from there.
