Pump tracks are a worldwide success, combining rolling jumps with banked turns, they are accessible to all. Riders use the track features to gain momentum and attack the track as fast as possible. The LCQ will be the first time the unique track designed by Velosolutions founder Claudio Caluori will be raced on. The bespoke design allows riders to race head to head on an identical track layout, starting and finishing from the same position. Spectators will be treated to an incredible race atmosphere and exhilarating head to head to battles.

The format of the LCQ will be the same as all qualifiers. Riders will first put down a seeding run from which the top 32 will continue in to the head to head knockouts. With 8 men and 8 women set qualify for the World Final the next day, all will be to play for.
