I've noticed I get sick less and less severe ever since I started racing a few years ago. First hint of illness, cut hard riding and add 3 to 4 hours of sleep and it usually is warded off (although still last week I missed the signs, raced, and got a full fledged tho short lived cold). But it could just be that racing got me more in tune with how I was feeling and needing rest.
anecdotes like this are not data, but you've gotta respect your experience.

sometimes things that are repeated may turn out not to be true.
