    Amature Eliminator?

    So it seems like the UCI has finally figured out (no jokes here) how to make an eliminator course. The Nove Mesto and Val Di Sole course were darn good!
    I was thinking this morning that I would like to try this format. I wonder when/if we will see Eliminator at the National level or even in a local series.
    Any thoughts on this y'all?

    I think it'd be awesome and I'm anxiously awaiting a chance to try it out.

    Happened at the first Ontario Cup event this season, but only for U23/Junior riders.

    Also happening at the Canadian Championships in mid July with an Open and Master category. Seems like it's catching a little traction here.

    Amature Eliminator?

    Not sure how popular it would be with the amateur crowd considering the increased risk of crashing. Average Joes can't afford throw away bikes like the pros can. It is certainly entertaining to watch.
