I wouldn't doubt it. I've gotten off my bike after a few 3-hour races to find that I can't hardly walk or talk. Ironically, when you're in race mode you don't notice how spent you really are.Originally posted by kato4moto
And I heard from a reliable source that a 49-year-old participant died due to heat-related issues while competing in the 12-hour race at Glen Helen. Haven't seen anything in the papers about it, though. At least this guy probably wasn't drinking alcohol.
