I don't claim it proves anything. But I am not alone in noticing it. Johan, Lance, George all talking about it. I assume they are cherry picking too. Start at 29:45....

I think this 20 year old who has been racing since 2017 has pretty much established everyone should go get a day job. https://www.procyclingstats.com/rider/remco-evenepoel

Less for a pro. There are lots of ways to make more money. Doing wheelies when dropped off the back helps. There are KOM jerseys, Sprinter jerseys, and taking it easy on one stage to assist your...

This topic/thread is about [USA] Cat 1 and [USA] pro. While not an actual racer, I know a lot about that. My posts were simply about speed. Your experience racing and my experience as a fan, are...

Opinions vary, and "pro" mean different things in each discipline.
If you define pro as a category and stamp on your license - those are not all that hard to get - esp. in MTB where it seems about...

I bring it up as I do not think that the WT races can go faster than many of the short distance racers on a short course. Could a HS track miler beat an Olympic marathoner in a marathon - no. Could...

I specifically said "Top Juniors" which would include those you mention I've been involved with. I've spent a lot of time at the side of the road in Europe and and a lot of the time in the car next...

Or, they don't want to, or the age is off. I learned this watching WT pros ride here and mention it. They are not all that fast, and as they get more pro - they slow down.
You can look at Sagan...

They are very likely faster than WT pros. Top juniors often race faster.
Pros just do it longer.

You are right.
For being at the top - talent / both. But I think the OP (or later) which we have veered from a bit, was about cycling being a job - paying the bills. My gut is there are...

I think it is more nurture than nature too. Both my kids were trained. Mom's genes were great, mine, OK. It was more focus and family value of excellence. I met other dads of 10 year olds that it was...

Making a living at cycling is something more could do if they wanted to. This is something that you decide before you are old enough to legally drink, not a mid-20s. I knew a few of kids that...

It is semi-easy to get a USA pro license. It is essentially the old Cat 1. You (low 20 somethings) can do it making $1,000 from cycling and having the right person ask for you.
In MTB many have a...

USA Pro is the new Cat 1. You pay money, you get pro (if you are good enough). Was Lance more than a Cat 2?
I'm rather harsh, but if the income from cycling is not the sole means of supporting...
