Given that there are about 10 total Asian cyclists in the world (let's be honest it's mostly a Euro/American sport). I don't think anyone's considered applying these principles to cycling. Doesn't mean that they don't apply though!
Maybe if you are refering to top level pro riders. But, I sure have ridden with plenty of fast guys here in China. Give them a few years and you likely see them moving up the ranks. Trouble for the Chinese guys I know is time off work and disposable income. No lack of potential talent here, for sure.
