Not sure, but if the goal is to create WC opportunity for US racers, then it makes sense not to fill the field with riders that are already WC qualified. The best solution may be an East/West (5 races each side) series that could then collect together at the Nationals every season. (emulate AMA Supercross)

@Ambatt, But skiing is a whole family access activity making that possible. Plus winter is still a romantic sell for vacation homes. Most DHers are willing to sleep in their car to ride. Its just a different demographic maybe?

Hmmm, great article and lots of good information. I feel for Laslo, but understand the issues surrounding that decision. I really wish they could double the number of races, include Colorado, Idaho, Utah, Southern Cal, and maybe a southern/southeast US Venue. One point though, and at a risk of sounding nationalist, I think a US pro series should only be paying points to US pro riders. What is the value of attracting international riders to this series?(Most are already qualified UCI pros) (and Canada already have a national DH series paying UCI points!?) it is supposed to be the series that produces the best American candidates for UCI competition. Every non US rider participating (especially existing top WC riders) is therefore taking up spots on the qualification roster for our boys in World cup berths. (Which has been imbalanced for some time against US riders requiring trips out of the country just to try to earn qualifying points, or as Chris described makes for a tough selection process of petitioned entries.) It seems that the US Pro GRT series in this form is actually an American Continental series potentially pulling from north and south of the Border. Im not sure I understand that in principle, but then I am surely ignorant of many of the factors surrounding this. Again, Great article, explains a lot, was needed. Thank you PB.
