It's Sea Otter Time!
The UCi changed the date of the SA WC back in July last year as all dates on the UCi calendar have to be fixed, especially the World Cups! The Shimano BDS was scheduled the week before at Antur Stiniog and we were lucky enough to be able to over the event back a week. I am sure Sea Otter have some very valid reasons why the date could not be changed.

British Downhill Series Round One - Slideshow
Dbox, always happy to give an honest answer. To register the event as a UCI cat 2 event with the UCi costs around 1,000 euros. The UCi send over an international commissiare. I just have to pay for their transport from the hotel back and forth, hotels and food. I also have to pay out the prize money (following the UCi guidelines) and offer free entries to UCI Elite Team riders. Plus offer a few extra bits and pieces at the event. In return I get listed on the UCi calendar and can offer UCi points. This should mean more pro riders, more sponsors and more spectators. Men’s UCI cat 2 1st 300 Euros 2nd 230 Euros 3rd 165 Euros 4th 130 Euros 5th 105 Euros 6th 90 Euros 7th 80 Euros 8th 65 Euros Women’s UCI Cat 2 1st 265 Euros 2nd 200 Euros 3rd 130 Euros 4th 65 Euros UCi Cat 2 Points Available: 1st - 30 2nd - 20 3rd - 15 4th - 12 5th - 10 6th - 8 7th - 6 8th - 4 9th - 2 10th - 1

I am more stoked that they are calling the mid range Teams instead of R2C2.
