Was it likely a jock consigned for so long to 3rd tier mediocrity would develop world-class skills? Of course not.

But lots of riders reach full maturation at a career point well beyond that of other athletes. And I am not basing my lofty opinion of the 32-year-old Leon on just the derby. Please.

I well understood when I so marveled at his talents that plenty of observers, some knowledgeable, would understandably take exception. I get it. And so be it.

They are not naive to the ways of racing-and neither am I.
