Heating up

This weekend it's time for the 8 hour Enduro MTB race.
Not even summer yet, it is predicted to be 32 C on race day... the challenge will be not only to stay smooth and comfortable on the bike for all 8 hours, but to stay well hydrated and cool.
The conditions will be a huge contrast to the 24 hour Insomnia MTB race that my partner & I did in 2007. It was the middle of winter, with freezing cold rain and so much mud!

The Enduro will also be the last racing hit-out for my partner before he lines up at the start of the 2008 Crocodile Trophy on October 21st. There is no doubt that this race will be tough. However, he has done so much training towards this event that I am sure he will achieve all of his personal goals for the race.
