I don't really follow the current MTB race scene, so I don't know who's hot and who's not, but watching the ladies event yesterday I realised that we only had one person entered in each event, where as countries like the USA, Canada, Germany and others had two riders.

Why do Team GB only have one rider per event?

Thanks for that. I might have known the UCI was behind it :roll:
