The last mx race I entered was on my brothers 69 CZ 250, in 1974. Hmmmm, that may have been the last race I officially entered of any type. Of course I am always racing anything and/or anyone going in the same general direction I am. BTW, I only drink DIET Dr Pepper. But on our rides I only had water and Gatorade, and a LOT of both. It wasn't really HOT for the Rally, my body just can't regulate heat anymore, my thermostat is broken. I lived 12 years in Lahaina (merciless sun) Maui and didn't mind the heat until one month when my body seemed to crash. I can't handle even minimally hot conditions anymore. Just a wimp!
