XCE presented by Burt's Bees

On May 24, Friday night the Bentonville Bike Fest is excited to host the very exciting Cross Country
Eliminator (XCE) presented by BurtsBees.

XCE is a mountain bike race format
in which four riders compete against each other over a very short
course. In each heat, the two fastest riders get to the round while
the two slowest riders are eliminated from the race. It is similar to
four-cross except the course is not downhill only. The track itself is
similar to XC tracks, going both uphill and downhill with natural
and/or artificial obstacles.
● Very spectator friendly & within our festival footprint
● The short sprints and fast eliminations make it an exciting race


Men Open
Women Open
