How does the competition work?

Earlier today all competitors raced against the clock in the qualification round and the fastest 16 racers advanced to the elimination round.

These 16 competitors now battle it out on two, side-by-side courses. After run one, the riders switch courses and in run two, the gate of the person that won the first race opens first, equivalent to the amount of time they led by.

The winner after the second race advances to repeat the process while the other heads to the stands to watch the outcome.
