Time to get into shape. We can look forward to a hot racing season. As usual there is one Major event on each side of the Atlantic. As the Worlds will be held in Europe this time, it's been awarded Major status. The Euros this year will be a Main status event, so point-wise worth equally as much as the other Main events.
