 It's not cancellations that are the problem, the national schedule never had enough races. Good on Steven for keeping the dream alive regardless!

 I dont agree with this uci shit if a rider like Steve is at wc level why does it correlate to chasing points its really not helping up comming riders privateers etc theres a lack of descent races to gain the points surprising the us federation or whoever arnt supporting there riders.its the same in the uk its killing racing

 Because the uci and red Bull care more about the World Cup product as being elite and inaccessible. They see themselves as the formula one of our sport and they don’t care about turnout to national races or if talented guys never get a shot at the show. They don’t care if you need to be either the luckiest kid ever or come from money in order to race at their races.

It’s a real shame when a group like the uci puts their own image over the health of the sports they are supposed to represent.

Really I wish brands wouldn’t care about uci in mtb. I don’t think we’d still be doing mtb thru the uci if so many companies didn’t rely on them for road racing too. Which an ultra elite model is better suited since it is much less of a fringe sport.

 Super thankful for these kids still going above and beyond to chase their DH dreams and stoked someone was along to document this. Nice work Steve, good luck. We gotta revise this whole points thing, it is not working.
