yes, but said kid was a downhill racer--completely different sport, more akin to motorcross in terms of physical demands (e.g. moving large, heavy machine around at high speeds), so the strength and power he gained training with us was definitely beneficial, whereas it has much less transferability for other cycling such as road or XC even.
