Keeping cool in the heat.
Forty degrees plus in the heat was the nemesis for the Men's & Women's TT at the Delhi Commonweath Games.
Canada's Tara Whitten took care of the heat with a ice pack on her back as she won the 29 km flat out and back course in 38' 59.30". As the reigning world champion in the omnium and points race, Whitten closes out the Delhi Games adding to her three bronze medals in the points race, the individual pursuit, and in the team sprint with Monique Sullivan.
Whitten wasn't the only rider to use ice. "I wondered about energy and the heat. All riders worked hard with ice towels, ice vests, and ice chairs to keep our core temperatures down," said Whitten.
Linda Villumsen of New Zealand took silver (4.85 secs) & Julia Shaw of England grabbed the bronze 10.22 secs back.
It was Millar time as the Garmin man won gold in the Men's 40 km TT. David Millar's performance was amazing taking 55 secs from second place Alex Dowsett of England and Australian Luke Durbridge 1'01" behind. Millar looks to be a favorite in this Sunday's Chrono des Nations in Les Herbiers, France. Something tells me, champagne will be on ice!
