Extreme Hydration Issues

I've had two MTB races this year which I've had to pull out of from dehydration. Frankly, I could sweat for Britain! But in race conditions, with a high HR over many hours (4-6), I just cannot keep the fluids.

I'm starting to think that I should enter 50-60k races instead of 100k events.

Has anyone else got this problem?

Also, base level advice regarding hydration has already been taken, I drink loads, I supplement with electrolytes, it's just that I sweat at a rate which is simply not normal.
