Well I did NOT do well in the heat this afternoon. I was actually looking forward to my first hot WNR, but I just felt drained the whole way up - like it was everything I could do just to keep the pedals going around. I concluded that I ate too much lunch and didn't drink enough water.
No one showed up at The Church, so I was alone too.
Roadkill Report: a vulture eating a squirrel or something. The road was so hot the squirrel was barbecued.
Passed'em-Passed'me ratio: 0-4 not a lot of folks riding in this heat.
32°C at Junction... seemed hotter than that though.
These were the first two to pass me - they were smooth.

Turns out the first two and the second two were part of the same group. The tall guy in the orange jersey was Dutch, and I impressed him with a half-dozen Dutch phrases from my repertoire. They were talking about work, which sounded like a refinery.
At The Junction JB rode up - I wasn't expecting him. He said Charlie was coming too, so I waited a bit and then we exchanged stories about heat before going down.
