On Tuesday Nights, August 20th and 27th, the cyclocross scene will get a chance to tune up for the biggest season in Colorado history with two brand new formats! Without Limits Productions, along with title sponsor NiteIze, have gone way outside the box to create Preseason CYCLO X Formula Four and Relay Sixty! In the words of Race Director Lance Panigutti, "Cyclocross is such a unique sport that it lends itself to new formats, it's just never been done before. Formula Four and Relay Sixty are new ways to pump some excitement and spectator energy into a sport that's already stocked full of energy! One of our goals in 2012 with dialing in live and fast chip timing was to pave the way for event concepts like Formula Four, now let's set the course and line-up!" Below are descriptions of these two unique formats that will be staged at Valmont Bike Park.

Formula Four Tuesday August 20th, Valmont Bike Park!
We're proud to introduce the Formula Four format, a race with never ending strategy and a whole new level of punishing pain. Picture a field of 80 riders (A/B/C Waves), then slowly over the course of 55 min it gets whittled down to just 10 riders lined up for a 1-lap, winner take all race! There's no room for error as riders fight for every position on the 4-lap (5min lap), 3-lap, and 2-lap qualifying rounds. Better yet, there's no time for rest as qualifying rounds are separated by just a single minute after the last rider crosses the line.
Relay Sixty Tuesday August 27th, Valmont Bike Park!
If you thought the Formula Four Format was a blast then it's time to call up your teammates and friends. Relay Sixty is 60min of heart pumping and team yelling action that'll make you feel like a race car driver. A/B/C waves set up like Formula Four, but this time it's a straight 60min race with 2-5 of your race buddies. Teams can be all male, all female, or coed and must have a minimum of 2 athletes and maximum of 5. All athletes on each team must complete at least one lap for a result. Exchanges (Timing Chip) will be made in pit row! Pit row will also function as your wheel/bike pit as your teammates get in on the action each lap!
