Clink, I have one of you, from your earlier post I saw you were on the 12hr SS podium. Drop me an email and I will send it over.
Loved the whole experience, it was my first race and to finish on the podium was a great feeling. (2nd 6hr team). I found the course tough going but rewarding. I've got no races to compare it to, but if they're all like that then I'll definitely be doing more. I take my hat off to all the solo riders, 1 lap and I needed a rest!
My one gripe other than the already mentioned timings was the music. I brought my family with me to cheer me on and by enlarge we all had a terrific day, however, having tunes like Puddle of Mudd - She F*****g Hates me at 3 in the afternoon isn't on. It's not a big grumble really, the missus just took my girls for a walk when we realized it wasn't the radio edit. A bit more consideration needed is all.
Can't believe I'm moaning about music, next year it'll probably be too loud for me, God I'm getting old

Well I was mistaken the rider I thought had cheated was in fact genuinely suffering from exertional fatigue and had taken a wrong turn! I have apologised to said rider and my faith in humanity is restored!
Quick question about the Pairs category. Are these ridden together? Or alternate laps?
regular endurance xc race format, one member of the team racing at a time
Teams and pairs in endurance events always ride in relay with only one on the course at a time.
Generally, there's a rule that every team member must do at least one lap, but other than that, it's up to you how you work it.
Alternate laps is the obvious and most common way, but if one rider is fitter than the other, you can split it 2 laps to 1, or any other arrangement that suits you.
