It's true. A well-rounded level of fitness will more easily adapt at the very least. I've heard Coach Harwood talk many times with his athletes about being 'athletes,' and not just cyclists. He wants them to do other things to help in their competitive success on the bike. I haven't discussed it at length with him but I can see him thinking along the lines of a better balance of fitness helping many aspects when competing on the bike, injury prevention and coordination. Not to mention it helps prevent burning out.
