Looking for some advice on what to wear on a rainy/hailing/snowing race day. There's a road race here that's always bad weather!
I went out with a very warm base layer under a high end cycling rain jacket and my jersey over that. Had bibs on and nice warm tights over them. I don't remember much of the race, but I don't think I was cold during it. I did a solo breakaway for the last hour, which was nice because no water was spraying me from wheels infront of me. Maybe lack of wind protection caused my problems? When I finished (2nd! Drat!) I was severely hypothermic and a little delusional and worst of all soaked head to toe!
I'd like to remain fairly aerodynamic for those breakaways, so most rain pants won't work. I'm also a little confused as to how my base layer got soaked. Maybe it was sweat? Also, any good experiences with any gloves? I had lots of trouble getting my fingers to shift, my leather driving gloves were soaked too!
