Topic - Cramps during intense excercise

Dave Kerr - on 01 Oct 2013
My participation (and times) in both the Tour de Ben Nevis and Three Peaks CX were marred by really intense cramps in my inner thigh and quads.

The trigger appeared to be the transition between carrying the bike and riding.

I'm aware that the most common cause is electrolyte deficiency but this is unlikely here as they began about 2 hrs into the rides and I had been using electrolyte drinks in both.

After the TdBN experience I made sure I warmed up thoroughly prior to the 3 peaks but if anything the cramps were worse.

Any suggestions?
