World Masters Games VS UCI World Masters Track

I am intrigued.

Five women entered the World Masters Games 40-45 yrs 500m TT: 2 Nzers, 1 Australian, 1 Canadian and 1 American.

Eight women have entered the UCI World Masters Track 40-45 yrs 500m TT: 7 Australians and 1 NZer.

I am yet to figure out why this is so; why the World Masters Games has attracted a more diversely international competition base than the UCI Track Masters. Can someone please enlighten me as to why one is more attactive for international competitors than the other, particularly when they are so close together (although I can understand the cost of staying for an extra two weeks may be prohibitive).
