Yes it does. It costs $100 each way to ship a bike by plane ( thanks, Air Canada... ), and renting a bike for a week will easily cost more. I'm not doing this for hardcore training or anything, I...

Could also just be the talent pool ( ie, how many people are doing it ) and maybe one or two good coaches that are good at recognizing talent when they see it.
