Sounds like pro conti can't get wildcards to div 1 and 2 events, ASO is going to be upset if they can't invite more freely than that I think. So next years WT and the 6 best pro conti teams, this would really hurt cycling. Cost of a div 2 team compared to a pro conti team would be high and pro conti would be useless without invites to big races, meaning every year some crap team would be moved up and a div 2 team move down. Hence one of the div 2 spots would be wasted on an uncompetitive team always. Also if 2 teams is relegated the chance of moving down from div 1 to 2 would be huge, honestly why do the UCI think they need to use the same NOT working aproach that soccer and f1 is using, their ranking system where season long success is the goal makes certain games and races pointless to even watch, if this happens I hope someody sets up a pirate league. I really want to see what ranking they would give different races, is Omloop Het Niewsblad HC or 2nd div?

agreed on all points,

really hurts cycling in many ways , but it gives more power and money to RCS and ASO so not sure they care

it hurts the smaller promotors and if I am half right div 2 will be very expensive as they will be doing a lot of travel

Omloop Het Niewsblad My guess would be div 2 ,
