Alan,
I just finished a race and happened to finish at 2.7 w/kg, but 2.599 at 95% and first place finish was taken away. By the way I haven't done 2.7 ever in a race, so that seems off? If you are going to say the max is 2.49 w/kg, then be consistent with it and treat finishers with 2.6 w/kg the same and not award them first place or any place either.
