I also got to see what my heart rate was while riding. Average heart rate while riding a loop was 160-165bpm. Max of 185, and when I'd be riding and mess up, I'd have a quick spike to 175bpm. I could tell I was fatigued by the end of the day. I had forgotten that I had only eaten breakfast at that point, and I wasn't riding with my camelbak (just grabbing water at the truck).
