Round 2



In the spirit of such races as Boardercross, Skicross and BMX racing a decision has been made to introduce an exciting new sprint format – WaveCross. All WaveCross races will be 6-8 minutes designed to create extremely fast pace, tight finishing racing. Dependent on conditions, WaveCross racing could involve racing around single turning cans rather than the normal two. 

An initial seeding race in a 12-minute traditional iron to determine groupings in four quarter-finals. Places 17-20 from seeding race are eliminated and do not take place in quarter finals.

Based on results from seeding race the following quarter-final groupings for WaveCross will take place;

QF1:                  QF2:                  QF3:                  QF4:

1st                     2nd                     3rd                     4th

8th                       7th                     6th                     5th

9th                       10th                   11th                   12th

16th                   15th                   14th                   13th
