|Even in retirement there is no off-season for Cipo|
A few things need to be worked out before the start of next season. First, when is the draft? The Tour Down Under starts on Tuesday, January 20th. The weekend before is busy with birthdays, pond hockey and NFL playoffs. I suggest we either meet Sunday night or do it Monday (MLK Day). I know about half of us have that day off, but we could do it whatever time works for everybody. If that does not work we could always do it the weekend before that (10th or 11th). Please let me know what you think.
Second, what's up with the rule changes? We have talked about dropping most of the euro level races, but cherry picking a few that we like. Also, there has been discussion of changing some of the points for these non UCI World Tour races. Namely, reducing the points available in the US races and the Worlds. Having almost all of our races be from the World Tour should make drafting and the point system easier to understand. In addition, it will be much easier for me to tally, not to mention reducing the need for weird pirated feeds from Italy. So there it is let me know what you think and if there is a non World Tour race that you want included let me know. Wiskota!
