It's an interesting article, and I agree that one doesn't want to be too rigid in pedal position. I have a lot of float on my road pedals. But his "mid-foot" position is pretty close to a "ball of the foot" position, it certainly doesn't resemble the pedal-under-instep position I see many beginners adopting.

Whatever, the important thing is to find what works for you and choose a pedal that helps accommodate it.
