Oh, I guess I was responding to your point that people were getting there on their own; your point that the National Team system was cryptic; your point that there's no path to get support; your point that the fastest bike racers aren't on an Olympic path; and your point that the track program's problem is that it has not attracted talent from road racing.

Lea is a great example. The National Team program wasn't around when he was racing. I've often wondered if he feels a twinge of regret that it started after he finished - if he thinks he could have done more with the support they're offering now. maybe i'll reach out and ask him.
