It is with great pleasure that we can announce this event to take place on the evening of Thursday 4th July 2013. XC Eliminators are growing in popularity with a World Cup series now taking place throughout the year and many one off events being mooted in the UK. An opportunity for us to host our own version of an XC Eliminator at the iconic Hadleigh Farm Olympic MTB Venue has arisen and we will form part of the Shine A Light day of celebrations on Thursday 4th July.  

 

For those of you not familiar with XC Eliminators (XCE) they are a knock out competition based on a short 1km circuit. The competition consists of 4 riders in a heat with the first 2 across the line progressing to the next stage, eventually leaving us with 4 riders to contest the final. The course will be a mixture of wide paths to allow overtaking with technical features thrown in to spice up the action and allow riders with higher technical abilities to come to the fore.

 

We are now inviting you to enter this exciting new event and be in with a chance to win the £100 first prize!!!

 

There will be NO spectator parking at the venue.
