The first six hours of Moab were very warm and extremely dry. Riders had a difficult time staying hydrated. As the cool evening and cold night set in the cramping in the riders was like something I have rarely seen. As part of the therapy staff, I went through two gallons prior to midnight and I was standing in the shade the whole time!
My utmost respect goes to all finishers, especially in the solo category.
For anyone who has never been to a 24 hour race, the all-night campfire parties alone are worth the trip.
