Default What Fuels Dutch Female Cyclists?

So, is it training alone that has led Vos and van der Breggen own Fleche Wallone since 2007? Training alone has Dutch women winning six of the last ten UCI word championships road race? If this is training only, then all the coaches of other women's trade teams and the national team coaches should all be fired. If it's only training, why don't other nations have such stunning results? I could be wrong but the results are pretty amazing. Van der Breggen has won' Fleche Wallone more times than either Valverde or Merckx. That's remarkable. Why don't other cyclists copy the same training program?

Total ********.
They dont need drugs, as they have got a quality training system in
place. Think of the SKY team 5-8 years ago, everyone was saying they must
all be doping, yet it has now been revealed some of the secrets their
Coaches knew, all about tapering for a race, and getting the training
right to peak for that forthcoming race. I read one this week, one rider
did a 4 hour training session on the bike, at a high level, after that he
had to do a 20km run. What other teams do / did that?
'Dont see it in mens races' - ever watched the tour, and a late breakaway?
It happens 4 or more times during every tour. It isnt that the leaders
are 50% better than the others, they make a small gain, increase it
slightly, then the chasing group start messing around with no focus on
catching the breakaway, so the lead gets insurmountable, hence they only
keep to their one pace, so the leaders stay away.
