More races inked in. Winston-Salem and Philadelphia. If we connect the dots, California finishes a week before WS or alternatively the Canadian double header of Saguenay and Beuce starts a few days after Philly.
Reading the post, I think it will be Saquenay & Beauce. California would be awesome - but spots in that race are highly sought after.
In the last couple of years, the distribution of teams was thus:
Year WT PCT Conti
2015 8 4 6
2014 9 3 4
2013 8 3 5
2012 8 4 4
2011 9 4 5
2010 7 2 7

For 2016, 10 WT teams[1] have indicated that they'll participate. #novonordisk & #uhc are shoo-ins, #wiggins (bringing the namesake rider) have been announced by the organiser ...
If they stay with 18 teams, only 5 more spots are available. As there are 10 *usa Conti teams, I see very slim chances for #academy to get an invitation.

That said, I think it'd be awesome if they were invited: Boivin, Butler, Lemus, Craven, Korus, Pavlic, Turek and Sagiv would be a very competitive squad.
