I think the combined license is great. But, then again, I race road, MTB, and CX. Shelling out $90 to be able to do that sucked. I think the very slight increase in overall fee is acceptable. Most of us are riding around on $120 tires for crying out loud... $10 is nothing.
That said, the increased 1 day fees are total BS. USAC is going to be brining in a TON more money by charging all the roadies, who don't MTB, the extra $10 than they ever did on the extra $30 made from the minority racing road and MTB. That part is a total money grab and will hurt participation of new racers.

Too bad it only measures left leg power. Most people's power distribution varies greaty over the course of a race, as fatigue sets in. Also, there have been numerous reports of inconsistent power readings from these meters, even while being used on rollers or a trainer. If a unit isn't at least self consistent... it's worthless as a training tool. Also, many people have found problems in how the units measure cadence (no magnets used, it's dependent upon accelerometers). It's easy to tell that if even small errors arise in cadence calculation, lots of problems can arise in the power numbers.

Yep, it's just an additional cash grab. At least they could have advertised this was going to be enforced ahead of time.

Why is Page not listed as a favorite Domestic or Euro Rider? Also, the FMB Super mud is listed for fav tubular, but not fav mud tubular? Really poor guys...
Katie and Mark have a LONG history of crapping on any previous sponsor. Sure, Syn Nys had a few problems with shifting last year on Shimano (and a broken pedal). But you don't see him always bad mouthing the parts.
Mark was trashing the Shimano parts during the season last year pretty badly on twitter, as well as the Rabobank logistics for getting bikes, wheels, etc, to them. I'm fairly certain she ran Avid Ultimate brakes last season (anodized orange to look like the rabo brakes) despite being on shimano.
I wish the best for her during the race season. But, I have no sympathy for her sponsor situation (remember a couple years back when she was really hard up for a sponsor?). When you constantly burn every bridge you cross... eventually you'll be screwed.
