Clearly in reality the whole event is way below WT level in terms of race stature and prestige

The field will be the equivalent of a 1.1 race, albeit a very exotic one, with a handful of WT/PCT "teams" and a lot of CT ones, but the prestige is harder to evaluate and will depend very much on who you ask.

Using Luke Rowe as an example, there's no doubt he'd rank a PR or TdF stage win way higher on his wish list than a Commonwealth Games Gold medal, but if we asked him which he would prefer between a win at CEGORR or a stage at the TdS or the gold in April, I think he might plump for the latter.
