I've noticed that, for at least sprint events, that the top master's performances match that of top Elite Women.

lol I'm been preaching that for years. I'm glad to see people using narrow drops for the 500M with success.

I think the benefits of using narrow drops even extends to the 750M...and maybe even Kilo for some riders.
