Fabien Cousinie who manages the Hutchinson UR Team had this to say I am totally for doing a longer series with a lot more races because our sport needs to become like the Formula 1 of MTB. To become a good show that makes people dream, we need more than

Here's what Greg Minnaar had to say on the matter. My ideal WC season would be a 10-race series for a couple reasons. 10 races gives you enough time to come back after a mechanical, we have the calendar to accommodate, we have great venues that we don’t

@chuck norris, I would give anything to see today's riders and bikes tackle an old-school Mount Snow course at the World Cup level!

Great input so far everyone. Sir Steve Peat gave a quick response as did Syndicate team manager, Kathy Sessler. From Kathy Sessler I would like it if we had 8-10 World Cups. I generally think we don't have enough of them. I think most of the managers

how many times have you been stuck behind or heard about someone being stuck behind a slower racer, only to have them ruin your run? w/ some creative loading, those pesky riders who won't get out of your way could be a thing of the past.
