Trying to keep Rob cool.

John Tetz sits in the Varna as we test out some of the cooling systems. Rob needs some help with the intensity of heat.

We built an ice water drip system to and gravity fed it through some aquarium valves and onto his jersey where it would evaporate.

These next two shots show the misting system. It was made from a pump sprayer and bits of tubing and a water bottle.

Note the pump sprayer set up like a brake lever.

Here Damjan shows me his blown front tubular tire. Damjan told me that he has been waiting for a new tire for the past 3 years. He had run this tire at various events including Battle Mountain.

His bike is tough but scratched again.
