For the higher levels of competition I am convinced sprinters are born, not made. Of course any successful sprinter needs to be willing to do the work and give every effort 100% but without the right genetics you will only get so far through training.

I think from the endurance side things are far more trainable although still to reach the top levels of the sport, genetics factor in.
I agree with this. If we look at the empirical data, we donít really see many match sprinters become world team level roadies or the opposite; many world team roadies become match sprinters.
