It could have been a little hotter, but not much. Me, JB, and Cindy. They gapped me at the Bump and had about two minutes on me by the Junction. The heat can really sap your strength. Bugs were terrible up there and we came down.
Hardly saw anyone else up there. Didn't see any tarantulas. It was dead, but better than not riding. Even descending was hard - totally zenless.
