Mono-bob would encourage other countries to compete, and also would reduce costs for countries that struggle to field 2 or 4 men squads.

 

Also I thought for some reason cyclo cross was another term for ice cross (red bull crashed ice), this has to be on lol.

 

so add two to my total. 148 in 19 sports.

Yeah, that's why I said it. In our country's case (Spain), we had a guy in mono-bob in YOG's but now he has nothing to do as there's no more Spaniards in this sport to compete with....

But it doesn't have so much appeal outside of Europe.. :(

Or outside Belgium (and a little bit the Netherlands) even, to be honest :p

if you want to put a cycling event to the winter games then you must add Cycle-ball too :d

No way, sports at the Winter Olympics should at least potentially be held on snowy/icy conditions, otherwise we might just as well add basketball, handball and water polo as well because indoor :p

Although then for monobob I'd say there should be the same kind of criteria as for women's Nordic combined: first a good number of years with full World Cup competition so it's not still a new event/sport when added to the Olympics.

That would be so disappointing :yikes:

 

In my opinion, 50km classic mass start is the single 'highlight event' of the winter sports calendar :bowdown:

Well freestyle is far more popular and competitive nowadays.

I know, but that it's more popular doesn't mean it's automatically better. Anyone can easily learn freestyle, learning classic requires much more dedication, which makes it harder, but definitely increases the 'epicness' of the event (just like the marathon vs the 50km race walk).

Nah. It was a highlight when it was an interval start!

Without a doubt there needs to be a consistent world cup that develops the sport first.
