Is it just me or don't you think they could find a way to have the two US events back to back? There would still be a lay off between events, but it just seems stupid (very stupid) financially to run an event in the US, then go back to the Czech Republic than back to the US again. In a sport that is losing teams due to financial reasons, the increased cost has to be huge.
