Further, Michał Kwiatkowski doesn't seem to have any track palmares. So, make sure that the person that fits your son fits for track cycling. A very common mistake is for bike fitters who are good at fitting for road bikes simply think, "Pffft. A track bike is a road bike without gears. I'll just fit the rider the same way."

That's like a guitar instructor saying that "A violin is just a guitar with less strings."

To make the National Team, your son must be talented. He will probably do well with any decent fit. But be reminded that this is a sport that is won and lost by fractions of a second...even in local races.
