I posted earlier about the shorter stages but I agree with some of the new changes ASO has made, now that I already accepted the change for SA. I will allways regret not seeing the departure from Lisboa - allways thinking "next year IŽll go!".
I agree with the 450 rule, as to allow private riders to have the same (allmost) machines.
I will never agree with changing rules after the "match", or prior to the "match" but in shot notice, in any sport. That drives the fans away!!!
