What happens in another few years when a second or two is gleened from another "new thing" ? That could be say a 3 second advantage over winning or losing, one things for sure if the riders train as they do throughout the winter for the start of the race season and are putting in their all I for one would want to see them pushing the boundaries even if it was a second !
Competing at the highest level is hard graft, not just in biking but in anything........ Look how much the motoring industry has improved though F1 & 24hour racing, stratified fuel to optimise economy so less fuel carried = less weight = less fuel used...... This trickled into the mainstream motoring manufacturers in various guises but no one moaned half as much about tht as folks are about 1/2 an " on a bike wheel
It's obviously a SIZE Matters thing !
Maybe it matters and maybe it doesent but one things for sure !
You can't stop progression at the level that some of these manufacturers pour into advertising !
It's got to be a good thing, and if it isn't well we can all get one of them Dandy Horses !
