Oh please no. One of the many reasons I like cycling is that it isn't built on chest-thumping nationalist type behaviour. Yes there are nominal 'national' type teams in that the pro-teams as are come from different countries but for the most part contain riders of many nationalities. The roads, bridges and mountain passes don't stop at the borders and nor should the representative of a team.
Correlation is not causation.
