What about Pilgrims? The sport would not be in the mainstream media without him.

Zum Zum Balance Bikes - Steve Peat Helping Make Pushbikes for Kids
Do you have to be Lord of the Manor to ride in said controlled manor? I like the Softride-esque beam idea. Cool idea. Can you fit a flex stem on it to complete the look?

Some sports are athleticism based, some are skill based. I think cycling is in the middle.

I understand your point, but I believe there is a point at which practice becomes more important than genetics. The point of no return in terms of skill, if you like. Look what happened to Rossi. Destroyed everyone on two wheels for twenty years, had a go in a competitive F1 car and was two seconds off the pace. Shaw, Kobe, hawing bolt or whoever else could never be competitive in a sport which relies on learned skill.

I'm pretty sure F1 is a healthy dose of both. A poor man with great genetics will never even know what a steering wheel feels like. How about golf? Try getting into that without coming from a rich family. Sailing, flying, equestrian. On the other hand, football is pure nature given its widespread popularity and start-up cost of nothing. You don't even need shoes or a ball to play footy. That is why it's the greatest sport on earth. I'm not a fan myself, but you have to appreciate the mass appeal.

So which is it, nature or nurture?

Some of it is innate. He works hard but he's also got massive balls and is a natural athlete. Every sport he tries he's good at quickly. Most people wouldn't be able to pull, or even conceive half the shit he pulls even given twice as many years to practice. Believe that.
