Madison Saracen Development Team Returns in 2017
Great work from Madison Saracen, investing in the stars of tomorrow. Trek have done the same with Kade Edwards, we need more of the big teams investing on the kids and bring them up through the ranks.

Snapshot: Examining the UCI's Changes to World Cup DH Racing
@thestigmk1: We have to pay the UCi to host a UCI Classe event. Plus give away free entries to all UCi Elite Teams, plus the extra prize money and extra commissaires (travel, accommodation, food etc..). The reality is that it costs several thousand pounds more to put on a UCi event. Top 10/15/20 get points but the problem is those riders already have hundreds of UCi points. Those scratching around for 40 UCi points therefore need to head to UCi events around the globe where the competition for points would be less than say a BDS, IXS Cup etc.. Even Peaty couldn't get enough at Portugal earlier last year could he?

BDS is pushing forward for female participation at our events. Equal prize money, a large Junior female category and more importantly, at every round of the series last year we supplied toilets at the top of the hill, for last minute nerves and all that. We also appreciate this primarily helps out our female athletes as well as Commissaires, Timing, Media, BDS Team and Spectators.. We will again ensure toilets at the top at every round of the 2017 HSBC UK National Downhill Series as we believe this is essential kit. We also welcome all international female riders of any age from Cadets up to Grand Vets!
