Track is Mondial-izing very fast and there are some very good riders coming from outside of Europe. I appreciate the argument but it is getting more diluted every year. At some point the Euros are going to accept the world is entitled to share the sport and it will change the distribution of power to some advantage and to some loss too.
I agree 100%, but my point wasn't that the worlds should be in Europe because that is where the best riders are from, my point is that the worlds should be in Europe because that is where the World Tour mainly is, and the top pro teams are all based there.
the great track riders in Malayasia, Oz, or wherever can always get to worlds in Europe, but as we saw this year, the top Euro based riders can't go to worlds outside of Europe because of their contracts.
