Weaknesses aside. Would level would you say is the most important for each of these types of races? Threshold, VO2 max, Anaerobic capacity, or neuromuscular?

Road race seems to be about having a big base/aerobic capacity. So that you're as fresh as possible for the finish.

Crits you can probably get away with less of a base.

Threshold. Pursuit, points race, mountain xc, cyclocross - threshold. Maybe the odd vo2 and anaerobic work but you will always be better off with a larger FTP.

"Its an aerobic sport, dammit."

Threshold.As tapeworm says,best threshold wins races (that aren't 20 second track sprints)
