Random thought time:
With the UCI taking it on there is a chance this is going to explode worldwide in the near future with worlds championships, UCI points etc. So, could it be a possibility say 2 Olympics from now?
I see issues with televising it well but with clever timing etc and multiple people out on stage it could be quite interesting. By the time this may happen wireless gopros could probably be televised!
It my be easier to stage than DH which requires such specific landscape/infrastructure and the bike industry will probably back it as it sells expensive bikes like hot cakes.
