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 1.25 mile short track itself is similar to XC tracks, going both uphill and downhill with single track sections between open fire roads.

1) Riders do a one-lap individual time trial for seating.
