Those who marveled at Ray’s diet last year — diet what diet! — may be wondering again about that. Fewer gummy worms, gummy bears, gummy fish, gum, potato chips, and monster drink. Lots of coke, Gatorade, water, and … Wendy’s junior cheeseburgers. Actually only three of them, but all at once and right after the worst riding he did — that stretch with heat exhaustion.

So, apparently the Wendy’s junior cheeseburger (times 3) is the magic option to power Ray for 12 hours and over 150 miles.

Pizza is still good. So is Redbull. But those burgers did what nothing else could.
