I don't fully agree. For one thing, I had personally experienced improvement of basic running skills - with training. You seem to be missing an important point in your reasoning (IMO) - learning consciously and properly is needed first, before the moves become automatic. You can do it OK even without training, but proper and conscious training can help one improve - THEN training it until the improved technique becomes automatic.

This goes for any sport and skill, including cycling.
