Haven't checked out what's up with the IDF for 2014? Well it might be worth looking into if your planning on doing some racing this year! On January 24th the International Downhill Federation had its first AGM. It included the itinerary for the coming year a few changes and a pretty decent Q and A period for anyone who had any questions.
One of the major changes coming for 2014 is the amount of races that count towards the world champion title. An increased number of World Cup races means you'll have to attend more to keep in the running, check out the details on their website: http://www.internationaldownhillfederation.org/profiles/blogs/change-to-rankings-calculations-in-2014
What did you think about the meeting? Anything you disagree with agree with?
