Spokehub racing, Pedal for a Change and Whacky Talky teamed up to organise a Mountain Biking event in Guwahati, the XCO-Eliminator, on September 26.

The path was organised in the Bagharbari highlands and comprised of difficult single trails with challenging uphills and descent portions.

The race format consisted of ten laps of two kilometres each with a total of 25 riders in the men’s category and 2 riders in the women’s category.

Only 10 riders remained in the men’s category following the end of the third lap, with others being eliminated.

After the completion of lap six, only the top five riders remained with the others being eliminated. Thereafter, at the end of each lap, the last rider got eliminated.

Innus Ali came first, Diviyaj Biggun Paul came second, and Raikom Enghi finished third in a race of extreme skill and endurance. The other two positions went to Micheal Tendon Terang and Piyush Doley.
