Seriously, no one has started a thread on this yet? I may have missed it, but I looked pretty closely to see if there was a thread on this already.
Thoughts on the new changes from USA Cycling?
Which is a problem in places (like Colorado) where the numbers are big enough to need 3 regular fields (pro-2, 3, and 4). It would be much better to give local reps discretion to upgrade after 10 races, so they can go what makes sense on a state-by-state basis, instead of making this one-size-fits-all.
I agree. I earned my upgrade this year and am dreading the eventual influx of so many more riders.
