I know riders get dehydrated but he was admonished by the crew to drink. I also know saddle sores can be show stoppers. But the thing that bothers me is he wasn’t training. He wasn’t ready to race. He was riding 2 new bikes. He knew 1 didn’t fit at the April 6 RAAM Challenge but I don’t think he resolved the fit issue. The 2nd new bike looked like the saddle was too high. If he had been training he could’ve worked out fit issues. Continued in the next post.
