Seal up tight and keep your body heat in... it's a lot cooler than the 122* outside.
Learn from the nomads and wear thin layers to keep the hot outside layer from heating up your insides.

I've ridden a lot in the desert regions of CA but 115* is about where that seems to cap at although I did do 119* once.
It's contrary to what you'd think but wrapped up in leather I was hot but not dying. In my mesh I get delirious even with hydration. Convection is a bitch.
