    This prizes are badly skewed To the overall winners given travel costs and the field you have to go thro to make a final. Especially in the black absolute-> 1st get 10 times as much as second..that is not good. Second in black absolute getting no more than 1st in blue is ridiculous! I hope finalists have the smarts to agree a more fair split before the fight ie 2nd 10k$, 1st 23k$ or 12k+21k, for example. Imagine losing 27k (by coming second) over a bad decision or advantage point.
