luk brings up some good points.
i certainly support the idea of mexico bidding to host a cmwc, but i feel it would be wise to reserve judgement until we hear the merits of the bid.
of course, everyone is free to thier opinions, and everyone in attendance at the open forum is free to vote whichever way they please. if for someone the most important criteria is the travel destination, fine. but personally, i think where the event is held is only one factor to consider.
anyone who has been to or organized a messenger championships can tell you, it is a big undertaking. even the simplest things that may seem like no problem require careful planning. there are so many small details to consider and so many things that can go wrong.
it is true, this is not rocket science, ulimately anybody can do this, but i do think it is important for the organizers to have experienced a few messenger championships before hosting one themselves, to see how the events go, see what works, what doesn't, how to solve certain reoccuring problems, etc. after all, the cmwc is the most important and prestigious event on the global messenger calendar. for some people having fun and partying with friends is the main issue, but many people take the racing very seriously, and it is a real shame when, as has happened before, aspects of the races get mixed up or left out and the results become questionable.
perhaps the mexico crew should consider putting on a mexican or north american championships before they try for the worlds.
either way, i look forward to hearing all the bids for 2013 this summer, and i hope that those in attendance will vote not only with thier heart, but with thier heads and consider what is in the best interest of the global community and the continued success of the cmwc.
can't wait to see you all in warsaw very soon!

well, there's some sort of connection since i was
in pana supporting the bid from jorge sequeiros
(mexico fixed),
and now it's us, bicimensajerosDF. the idea of the
CMWC in mexico city got stuck in my head and when i
got here and saw the possibilities i decided it
could be a reality. 
none of my colleagues here have ever been to a
championship, and some of them didn't even know
about it, and yeah, we need a lot of help (i'm
counting on you Luk!) but i do believe we can do
it. we'll start working on it this week, and if we
do come up with a proper bid i'll be in warsaw
(hopefully with some of my colleagues or at least
with team australia) ready to fight for it. lucha
libre style.

Ok ok ok

A lot of folks (including myself) would like to
see a CMWC happen in Mexico DF. But I'd like to
point out that there isn't really a connection
between the bid put in in Panajachel and the recent
post from Joaquin. There is no "you guys put in a
great bid in Guate" in this one.
This time it is actually messengers interested in
getting into the global connection. None of this
people have ever been to a CMWC. There is a lot of
homework to be done and a lot of assistance from
the world wide community needed to give them the
chance to put together a proper bid.
If we have to choose if we wanna go to Bruchsal
or Mexico City for a CMWC... I guess people will
vote for Mexico City no matter what. But if
Bruchsal has a proper bid and Mexico City just an
appealing taste of adventure at least I will feel
obligated to vote for Bruchsal.

Yes!!! Do it! It would be phenomenal to go to
mexico city! And you guys put in a great bid in
Guate also. It was a rely close vote. I say "yes!"
to mexico city 2013. 
....provided the rapture doesn't take us all

My two cents.

those of you who went to guatemala for the
worlds remember that Mexico city placed a bid to
host the CMWC2012. i was there supporting the idea
because i was then working in san cristobal,
chiapas (mexico) ... i guess one of the reasons the
bid didn't win was because there were no messengers
from mexico city there and then (and also because
chicago did a great job)... i'm now working in
mexico city with bicimensajeros.org and we believe
we can do it for 2013. what do you guys think?
should i present our bid again in warsaw with our
action plan? cheers
