II Rajd na Ślężę – too hot, too little water

It wasn’t race… but a lot of participants rode very, very fast. Route from Lubin to Ślęża mountain had about 85 kilometers… in straight line. We could choose the route ourselves, but we had to complete few checkpoints. My route had about 115 kilometers and additional 2-3 kilometers in Ślęża (about 660 m elevation during ride + 350 m during walking). It was impossible for me to ride to the top of the mountain on my bike (46/34 + 11-28T) after that route. It was fast… very fast with a lot of wind and hot. I also made a simple mistake: too little water during ride… and felt it at the end. The most terrible “collapse” I ever felt. But… I was the second and it’s nice!
