Got back with the team to photograph promotional material for the upcoming Lefkara Eliminator Race a cycling event which will take place on the 7th of April. So if anyone is interested in joining visit the official website here: https://www.lefkara-eliminator.com
The Cross-country eliminator (XCE) is a new mountain bike 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 eliminated from the race.
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.
