I did make all five passes (and had my ice cream). Pics and story here
Two bottles were enough, and I drank a lot of water and sports drinks.
Not having trained hard enough, it was an effort making all those passes. Last night, the second night after the ride, I discovered, to my dismay, that my urine was extremely dark. A little research seems to have confirmed my suspicion that my body was clearing out damaged muscle tissue. After drinking a lot of water, as of this morning, I'm back to normal. Certainly I feel fine, with feel no muscle soreness or any other after effect I'm aware of after the long day on a terrific ride.
