Follow the leader elimination contest

Here’s an idea for a social ride event/contest. The basic idea is to stay as close to ride leader as you can. It could start with a neutralized distance of maybe 2 or 3 km. Then, your goal would be to stay right on top of the ride leader. Every 30 seconds or minute or so, the furthest 1 or 2 or 5 riders away from the leader would be eliminated until just 1 rider remains as the winner.
