I'm going to go out on a limb and say too many N American organisers or venues are looking solely for a ROI - there is no passion spirit or risk takers and maybe more importantly little help from host towns and tourist agencies that kick in around the rest of the year. While yes, Aspen could have done another year after their great job it is also good to go to new venues and give venues like Aspen for example to build even more cool tracks like they did this year. Don't solely blame EWS and UCI for not coming to USA but rather the lack of community who are willing to do (like Windham banded together to do) But i do agree it is mind boggling to think there is no stops where a big percentage of the industry has their HQ and you have top riders like Gwin and Rude. Make it happen.

it came down to available dates next year. Everyone wanted to avoid a clash with CWX slopestyle and DH weekend. Im sure Aspen will be back at some point. It was sweet this year. Often giving some venues a break means even better racing on more new trails the next visit.

This is where you are wrong. No one complained about the actual technical sections. It was the man made flat transition sections between. Problem areas and potential problem areas were noted and pointed out to uci after track walk, training and qualifying. Some sub standard work fixing said sections was done half heartedly one of the days. And you would be wrong in thinking it was only a few complaining. These were man made sections that needed work to make track raceable and safe. More than one broken collar bone from the one axel deep rut littered with boulders. Not cool and avoidable.! If this was your marshal area you would not have stood for it and would have sorted it out. Maybe time to roam a bit more

Easy to skew the numbers for different purposes, but perhaps not fair... You could say over the last 16 years Brian has only had three frame sponsors. GT, Ibis, Intense. Now Ellsworth but you can't factor that in yet as we are not sure how many years he will remain there. Thats a whole lot less than nearly every other pro rider i can think of in a much smaller timeframe.

Just a note. He was checked by head neck and back specialists. Scans and X-rays. Pretty conclusive and scientific. Given the clear. But I do agree in part in fact with all that you are saying, but in Finns case they checked and monitored him pretty well. No sign of concussion either at time of crash (I was there) or after
