I saw this press release on Felt's website and thought it was worthy of mention:

So cool....it's basically the same as Contingency in every other form of Motorsports. Jim Felt coming from Motocross is probably why they came up with this first.

I hope other companies catch on.

I think it is great that the love is getting spread around (financially) to the top age groupers... It should help make it a tiny bit less pricey to race Kona.

I talked with Felt's Doug Martin a couple weeks ago and he talked about it:

Not taking anything away from Felt, but without a ProTour team they have more to gain from this than other companies.
