My 2014 season pretty much consists of sprints this year. I'm taking down my two bottle holder off my saddle and I want to put a aero bottle on my seattube so i'l have drink down there and up front. Can you guys recommend a good aero bottle for my 2011 Felt B12?

16 to 20 oz between the aerobars should be plenty for a sprint. Otherwise checkout the Torhan bottles:

For a sprint you don't even need a bottle but if you do I'd recommend something like the Torhans 20 or Speedfil A2 or PD Aero HC between your bars with a straw so you can drink without breaking position.  Just avoid the PD Aqua-whatever bottles as they have been proven to actually be some of the worst products in the wind tunnel.

During the race there will be plenty of opportunities to exchange bottles, so I'm thinking about going with the aero bottle and Gatorade bottle and fill up as necessary. What should I do?

When people think of hydration in the aero position, the first name that comes to mind is the Aerodrink from Profile Design. I was expecting a pretty quick and breezy review of this water bottle.

Rocket Science Sports has applied its hyper-technical approach to designing a water bottle. The result is a water bottle with dimples similar to those on a golf ball.
