And WT teams wouldn't bother going to the same amount of non-WT races
That said, we have probably also seen too many WT-teams in some races, where they "stole" points, results and money away from smaller teams, because of the current system.
Really hard to find some balance between those 2. I spoke to a manager of a smaller Belgian team last season who is against the current system exactly because of this and I can't really disagree with him. Fot them in particular, those smaller Belgian races where their main goals of the season cause it was a way to show themselves on the TV. This has become incredibly hard now that those smaller races have double the amount of WT teams at the start than before. It's way better for the viewers and for the organizers who see better riders at their race, but the smaller PCT or Conti teams are struggling because of it. They have to go to other continents to be somewhat competitive and their sponsors obviously don't really care about those races.
