Did Death Valley a few weeks ago in 120F - it was totally fine. Trick was to soak the pants, shirt, neck tube, and helmet cap in water and then close all the vents in the outer layer (BMW Airflow pants, BMW Rallye Pro Jacket). The air that still came through had such a nice cooling effect, it was totally fine riding in that heat.

You absolutely don't want mesh gear if you are riding in heat above body temp.
It'll dehydrate you incredibly quick.
