Having someone who was in the series and then goes out with injury and then returns is not an unreasonable scenario.
Promoting a two platform (3 really) series with 2 minor and one major platform to run simultaneously and then letting a rider switch from one minor platform to the major almost halfway through because his platform is taking a prolonged intermission is unreasonable given he has no chance to win the major platform and can have a significant impact on the standings of the riders who are in the major platform he is infiltrating.
