You know Laura Kenny, one of the greatest Olympians in history, well one of her best events in the velodrome is the elimination race. There are sprints every other lap and the rider in last position at the end of each of those is eliminated from the race. It’s a case of the last person standing wins.
This was the idea behind the Bat Flips & Nerds Eliminator. After every two-week scoring period, the team with the lowest score was eliminated and everyone else’s scores were reset to zero.
