At Pinkbike we're still not sure what to think about the XC Eliminator event. It's been around for a year now, and while some of the races have included some dirt, it seems to have become more of a road sprint on Mountain Bikes now. The World Champs in Saalfelden was a two lap, two minute course of a cobblestone track with two sets of stairs and one small jump. For those of you that are new to this event it's basically a 4X style elimination event, with four riders going head to head and the fastest two advancing. It's really exciting to watch, especially for spectators, but is it really Mountain Biking? Let us know what you think in the comments.
