Tips on how to deal with hot weather

For those riding on the track with the crazy hot weather out there, check this out!


I rode at MSR Houston last weekend and it was really hot. Several people had to sit out sessions. Many had headaches and weren't feeling well.

I rode all sessions except for the 1st one (I was still getting set up), and had the entire track just for me on the very last session, as nobody else wanted to ride.

While I don't like hot weather, I like riding on the track too much, so I do everything I can to have a great time out there. I've shared a bunch of tips at a Beyond the Track meeting last year and thought I should share the video here, as some riders may get some benefit from it.

Tums helped me lots of times during the endurance races.
Also having the camel-pack with water down Gatorade or Pedialyte also helps to keep the vital minerals in your system.
It's very important to star hydrating a week before the race and try not to intake any alcoholic beverages through the process. Not until the end of the race
During the races, I like to eat cold juice fruits, bananas for the Potassium level and a chicken salad but in small amounts at the time...

Those are great tips. Thanks!

I've incorporated Pedialyte months ago and am really liking the results. I'm thinking of getting into endurance racing next year, so all of these things will help!
