Is that what heat exhaustion feels like??

  I think I can safely say that I'm acclimatized to Canadian weather, judging by the distress my body felt racing Mennocross yesterday in 28C temps. My throat was parched at the start, and things went downhill from there. Dehydration and the feeling of being on the verge of some really bad heat related sensations had me wondering how I'd survive. Thank goodness I only had to suffer 30min plus a lap, unlike the A race badboys. The highlight of the day was certainly the kids race, where my son participated in his first ever race. It was really cool to escort him around the course and to hear his name called out every time he passed his fanzone. Thanks to all who made for a stellar event, once again.

So I think I know what's next on our cyclo cross scene. The triple flyover.
Forgive the beer pun in the title. I like beer.
