More amateurism

OK, so having looked at this a little more, it really is tough to discern the boundary between amateur and pro. The major issue is juniors who are in the BC Development program and so are not full-time, but who quite often graduate to the Academy where they will be. Going deep with amateur rankings, therefore, requires quite a bit more research but to keep with the spirit of identifying the best true amateurs, here are the Cyclostats British Amateur Bests.
