I learned my lesson (the hard way) at this same race last year. This poor guy didn't. I had heard a story than once you've had some level of heat stroke, that you will always be more succeptable to it thereafter. I was scary-close to ending up in the hospital at this race last year, and haven't felt the same riding in hot weather ever since. Words couldn't adaquately describe the purgatory my body went through in the last 30 minutes of that race and hour or so afterward. Lesson learned!
