OK, so some extra graphics may not cool you down if you are living in a summer heatwave, but they might cheer you up a bit and, whilst you’ll have to supply your own cooling fans, there should be plenty of graphic fans along the way. Some computers may not capture the extra graphics, this is to ensure that resources are focused on your performance … good luck!
With a short sharp ramp up to the finish line a close bunch sprint will be a fascinating prospect.
