Well this just sounds stupid. Am I not getting it or what why would this be a separate event?

My understanding is the World Championship is held in Germany this year and whatever they want to do in France go for it but don't call it another World championship event.

No reason for everybody under 18 or over 35 to travel to 2 different world championship events!
