Report from Steve Fritz: Max broke an age group record for 100km but he stopped after that. He fell/collapsed as he approached the 100km record mark, but was able to get up and cross it, however, that was all he could do. He is OK now. Because of the nearly constant rain, he had difficulty judging his fluid/carbo intake. He got fluid overloaded and then later on carbo underloaded by his estimation. Fun time was had by all.
