6 hour endurance races are not uncommon...
The no-headphones rule should be a no-brainer but i guess some mtbers have no brains.
In my experience riders NOT having headphones are the exception at an endurance race...
LOL< a 6 hour race is considered an Endurance race? LOL
6 Hour Solo Mountain Bike Endurance Race

The Rio Stampede 12 and 6 Hour Endurance Mountain Bike Race.
Steamboat Springs, Colorado - March 10, 2008.
Dirty Spokes Productions is hosting a mountain bike endurance race series this year in Georgia with four 6 and/or 12 hour events to choose from.
By all means, I am not Captain Endurance or the expert on endurance racing.
Or an expert on anything.
Im just an expert on my opinion and with all due respect to everyone I am entitled to them.
TO ME, an 6 hour race is a fun venue, not lots of committment, very friendly and safe and lots of fun.
Even an 8 hour race is a fun venue, not lots of committment, very friendly and safe and lots of fun.
12 hour is another animal.
24 hours is just incredible.
You go out and ride for 6 hours its a hell of an achievement for anyone.
Ride 6 hours your fastest and your gonna hurt.
Now double that effort or quadruple that effort...
Again my opinion. dont pay attention to it, I wasnt trying to hurt anyones feelings or insult anyones effort or put down the event. I think the people that go through the trouble of putting on events and gettting the community involved deserve a million thanks.
but again, just my opinion...
