"...true 6hr race." ? Redtrail racing have always done the cutoff time to be when you must be back to scoring table for your last lap to count. I think that is how they have done 6 hrs of El Lagarto. I forgot that. It was my mystake and I got caught by it. Other races I have done, the cut time is when you have to be back to scoring table to be allowed to go do your last lap. I thnk that is what you mean. I rested on 7th lap (my last lap) to save energy for an 8th. My bad... It would not have changed anything.
But all in all, this year it fealt more like a true professional race. Redtrail racing are more experienced at doing racing. They did a great job yesterday. Great prizes, great racer package, well organized, great announcing, music, podiums... Great job Red Trail racing and WTA for setting this up.
