Ask Alexandra Crown : Do you feel like it is necessary for younger riders to ride at a relatively high level in order to gain enough recognition to be successful later?

Hi Natalie,

I don't think it is necessary to ride at a high level as a junior in order to be successful. A lot of riders didn't start riding until their late teens, and success as a junior isn't a direct indication of success as a professional.
