I didn't really hear this news, but I guess USA National Champs is splitting up the Cross Country and gravity events. XC bandits will be in the lovely town of Sun Valley, Idaho for the next two years while they have yet to announce where DH will be. Nice place, close to home kinda, 6,000feet, chairlifts, all good things,,, seems pretty weird not to have DH there as Sun Valley would be an awesome venue, but I am all for separating disciplines. www.bikeradar.com
