The heat shows no mercy, and that was particularly true for Dr Will's 24hr "race". Back in June, Matt and Will did an episode (59) going over Matt's experiences in 24hr MTB racing and what Will could expect come race. Over the next 5 months from June until race day Will implemented as much of his sports science knowledge as he could to prepare for the demands of running for 24hrs (more details on Will's YouTube).
HOWEVER, Will neglected one key variable in his preparation, the heat. Unfortunately for Will, race day ended up being a hot day with no clouds or wind. As you'll hear in this discussion, Will made some tactical errors in the moment that lead to him passing out with heatstroke.
