If I understand the process correctly, individuals on trade teams can gather points that can be transferred to the National teams when called to join. So, stacking the field with trade and National teams increases the chances that the National squad can qualify for any event at Worlds or the Olympics. Beat, KGF, Wattbike, Landrover and Sky (from years ago), are all examples.
