Riding and racing in high temperatures has it challenges and it's dangers. Dark colored riding kit and lack of water is a deadly combo that can lead to a collapse, or a maybe a sultry relax, as pictured below. She looks hot, yet pretty cool, doesn't she?
To make sure you don't end up posing, instead of winning those cookie primes, make sure to keep drinking and drinking. Total hydration is the key to keeping ahead of the pack. And if you can take on water while riding in water, so much the better.
Of course the best idea is to dress cool. Real cool. A light color thong should do the job. And about five gallons of sunblock. Guess who's leading out the sprint tonight?
