The elites get to fill their own bottles with their drink of choice -- usually whatever they train with. It's one of the perks of being at the top of your game. Check out what Clint Verran (10th place, 2:14:12) had to say about the race.

It is my understanding that elite athletes drink out of their own bottles because they cannot be 100% sure about the contents of the Gatorade cups they can be handed. Spiked drinks with performance enhancing drugs or (like the episode of sienfeld where the racer accidentally takes Kramer’s hot coffee) they are unsure of what the drink is.
