San Diego-Tijuana Bid 2024 Cancelled

Recommended Posts

Can't help feeling that not allowing the Tijuana component of this bid just improved San Diego's chances about 1000 times. ;)

Now maybe the Poland and Slovakia will wise up and do the same thing with their 2022 joint bid

The difference, I think is that Zakopane (or Krakow for that matter) would be playing the environmental card here. They do have a slope with required vertical drop, but would rather use that as well as an existing slope in nearby Slovakia, rather than developing a new slope and trails and adversely affecting the environment.

In essence, if the bid is done correctly, only 1 or 2 venue(s) (for some alpine event) would be based in the mountains in Slovakia.

As for San Diego and Tijuana, it's (it was) nice to have 2 cities in close proximity share the burden, but when it's 2 different countries, with a problematic border crossing, then there's bound to be logistical concerns. Just stick to Tijuana offering hotel space and it's airport.
