Race format and who wins

Basically, the race is a relay-style race. Team riders of the first lap (who start the race for their teams) can after 1 lap hand over to the next team member or keep riding – that's up to the teams to decide. As soon as you ride 1 lap per solo rider, respectively per team, your time counts and is valid in the final results.

Mixed male/female teams: each team needs to record at least one female AND one male lap to be in the results.

The rider in the solo categories / the team with most laps (and shortest time thereafter) wins. If there are riders/teams in a category with the same number of laps, the fastest total lap time determines the ranking.

Team Remedy, riding male pairs.
I'll be the guy crying in the foetal position at around the 9-10hr mark wishing I could go to bed.
Probably the only guy stupid enough to race XC with 160mm travel as well.
