Richie, I’m not making the call if it was right or wrong what happened to you, but I believe that you have an hour from the time the results are posted to protest. After that hour the results are final. I believe it’s in the rule book.
The tech guys are provided the unofficial results only for use in determining who to tech. I learned the hard way at another org’s race that you need to keep checking scoring that day until the results from your race are posted to make certain you got scored correctly.
