For someone that is fit and with average physiology (e.g. average VO2max), it would not matter what training they did, they will never become competitive at the professional level of the sport.
So you think the VO2max is more important than the 20 minute power as an indicator of potential?
As I said, it just buys a ticket to the game. If your fit VO2max is 45ml/kg/min then it won't matter what you do, you won't become a competitive professional cyclist.
I think best indicator of potential is how you perform in races.
