Jenny McCauley - 2004 MTB Olympian
"Looking back, the race I still cringe over is the Olympics - I really felt awful that day, the worst I’ve ever felt on the bike. It was 45 degrees that day, so hot that my sister who came to watch was vomiting - and she was in the shade! I couldn’t seem to get any power out, I couldn’t breathe, no matter how much I drank it wasn’t enough, the dust made my throat close - it was horrible, and made worse by the fact that it was such an important race and one that I really wanted to ride well in!"
