Re: World Gravel Championship 2022

A couple of rhetorical things I'd like to know as I don't know/follow this type of racing and maybe only have a superficial view on it.

1 - Is the gravel community interested in this race? I thought they'd be against the UCI sticking their fingers into their pie and does it really fit in with the laissez faire, almost non-pro attitude that they seem to give off? Or is that attitude all talk and really they're just money-grabbers like everyone else?

2 - Are the regular gravel riders cheesed off that the big road names are parachuting in for this one race? Surely it's similar to CX fans/riders getting annoyed with MVDP and WVA (or Stybar going a bit further back) just turning up for a handful of races through the winter and then crushing the opposition at the Worlds.
