This means little -- it's a single-vote system, not a ranked one.
Suppose there was a great pursuiter who demolished the old WR at Worlds in the finals, but was
nevertheless beaten by an even faster rider. He should get no votes -- anyone who cares about
pursuit would vote for the second rider. OTOH, a lesser rider whose emphasis is sprint, for example,
might get votes from people who like sprints. Or facial hair. Or whatever.
The CN system is designed to pick a winner, nothing else.
