This hits the nail on the head, but I'm not the one who brought up elite athletes initially. I think that was ifall.

Maybe it was me but I'm not sure why it matters.

I'm far far far from an elite athlete, I rode a 50 mile MTB race recently and done a few centuries over the years and none of them could have been done without consuming carbs, during training and during race. Fact.
