    From Dick Mills' blog about coaching baseball pitchers (http://www.pitchingrebel.com/dick_mills_the_pitching_r/2005/07/former_professi.html):
    He's saying what I wish I could say as well about cycling coaching, but in almost as different an athletic endeavor as it's possible to imagine. Cycling is almost a pure endurance sport, while baseball pitching is almost a pure skill sport, and yet both disciplines carry with them a heavy burden of tradition, history, and young people wasting years following in the "footsteps" of pros with whom they have almost nothing in common. The blog is completely engrossing if you, like me, are appalled at the state of the art in retail cycling coaching.

    Thankfully, not all coaches believe in tradition for the sake of tradition.

    Ric "busting the myths, and bucking tradition!"
