When racing I prefer to not have that giant QR piece hanging out there to potentially get snagged on something.  I've had instances where, during off-trail excursions, I have to pull sticks and shit out from between it and the fork = lost time.  Switched to a bolt and eliminated that issue.  Also I prefer the bolt through's lower profile for similar reasons along with the aesthetics. It's also not worth the time to change a flat (QR or not) during a stage, I just ride it out and then have lots of time to fix my flat at the end of the stage.  Have never had a problem using a multi-tool to take off my wheel... I just don't over torque them.
