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.
If the top tier riders get their championship hopes derailed because they can't beat a kid from the 250's, then maybe they don't deserve the championship. To be the best, you have to beat the best.
