This s a very interesting question.
And the money factor as said above can play a big part of it.
At the all levels of racing,
It's all linked if you ask me.
To ride fast and consistent you need to be confident in your own ability and your Bike.
But how do you get that confidence.
You can practice and you will get better.
Or you can pay someone to teach you and get better $$$
Then you find that your going faster but on track days you are still not out front.
But your doing everything right.
It's the bike $$$$$
New bike or old bike with upgrades
Your times get better but your still not in front and your getting beaten buy guys on older or slower bikes ?????
You then have to say have you just reached your limit or do you just not have the desire like the guys in front to push that little bit harder or is it that your really just scared to put any harder.
Yes it's money, Balls, confidents, education, ability, but its Also desire and how much you want to be at the front more then the next guy.
