Cycling in hot and humid environment

How to deal better with this?
I was cycling many times at 36 C temperature with just a little discomfort, when air humidity was normal. But cycling at only 31-33 C with high air humidity is a real pain, 10-20% less efficient and unjustified high heart rate. Hydration is not an issue, with almost two liters of liquid with minerals for 2 hours.
I am just wondering how pros are dealing with this, since I never heard about failing a race due to warm air and high humidity.
