The Cross-country eliminator race (XCE) is a new race format in which four riders compete against each other in each heat, similar to Four-cross. The two fastest riders get to the next round while the two slower riders are put into heats for final result placing (Everyone is guaranteed at least three races).
The format differs from the classic cross-country race both in its sprint character and the separation of the race into heats. The 500m - 1000m short track itself is similar to XC tracks, going both uphill and downhill with single track sections between open fire roads.
How it works:
1) Riders do a one-lap individual time trial for seating.
2) Riders put into four person groups. They race one lap. 3) Top two advance to the next round. 3rd & 4th compete again for their overall placing in their category.
SCORING: Seeding for the first round of racing will happen with an Individual Time Trial. Scoring will happen overall finish. Overall Finish Awards plus prize list to top 3 in each category.
