Jaybird180 Posted April 22, 2010 Report Share Posted April 22, 2010 In my study of professional athletes, I've noticed that others who are at the top of their chosen sport are willing to discuss and disclose names of people who helped them progress to their level, they pay homage. This is not as much the case with professional racers. They even sometimes go through great lengths to conceal school attendance (coaches can verify this). For example the Makita Yoshimura Suzuki team have Kevin Schwantz on payroll but call him a "consultant". Why is there such mystery about the accession of a racer's career and learning curve? Is there a conspiracy to make us believe that it is all talent, that some are born with it and others aren't? What if we discover that motorcycling is a learned skill, that can even be learned late in adulthood? Just a thought I've been having during my morning shower... I'd appreciate a sanity check.
