Mt. Hamilton RR (NCal) back in the 90s. 18 mile climb w long descent and rollers to the finish. It was raining at the bottom and snowing at the top. Couldn't feel my arms or legs and couldn't squeeze the brakes. I was doing my best Fred Flinstone impression, putting my foot down to stop on the twisty descent.
I ended up by the side of the road delirious begging someone, anyone, to give me a ride to the finish line. I remember getting back home and draining the hot water heater in a one hour shower. I thing I regained full feeling in my extremeties about a week later.
this is the kind of **** pros endure every week during the race year. crazy!!
