On the mental side, again based on personal observation, I would say hardly anyone is smart enough, or mentally tough enough to accept being beaten by old slow guys who out-think and out-navigate them. You can feel "stupid" pretty easily in this sport. And in my opinion, other than motor racing, there is no sport that requires such intense uninterrupted concentration - it is absolutely mentally exhausting.
He's hit on one of the problems the sport has with recruiting, especially with recruiting good runners. They have to be comfortable getting beaten - often by quite a lot - by people who look like they've got no business beating them.
Adrian also touched on one of my favorite sports - auto racing. A subject of several previous posts, and a link to some observations from Martin Gregor.
