Boasson winning 3 stages at l'Avenir as a 19yo was epic. Sagan was not quite as impressive.

Just bringing back this thread from early 2010 - all the teams with Sagan obviously would have had the upper hand in the final ranking.

Without having checked all riders I think Ingsve or Jakob747 would have been the winner of this competition with riders ranked 1st (Sagan), 2nd (Van Garderen) and 6th/9th (Appollonio/Felline) in the U23 ranking on his team. Laurentiu might be joining the fight for victory with Sagan, TjVG and 12th (Geniez), 13th (Pinot) and 14th (Phinney) on his team.

Be interested in doing this if you're trying to do a 10/11 edition. Might be worth lowering the number of guesses (or limit the younger and harder ones. eg: 5 from '89, 4 from '90 and 3 '91+). Also giving a link of two to sites that have details of younger riders might increase the interest.

i think it was merckx.

i can't really remember the rules, but it was something like pick the winner of each race (think we did mainly PT races) and in stage races, each stage winner, jersey winners etc.

It was pretty cool.

Searched the forum and found out it was Merckx, who ran the "Prediction Game" - maybe you can try and convince him to do it again next season?

I'd still really like to make a U23 competition, but it depends on the number of participants. If so, it would still be mandatory to pick 5 riders from 1989, 1990 and 1991+ (And I might even exclude the obvious choice Sagan) to allow more diversity amongst the younger riders.

I was told there is also a 18yo Kiwi who almost beat McCaulley in the NZ tt champs.

How about Canuck champ Boivin. Won in Cuba already this year.

Sorry but beating McAuley on a bike is no great feat!!

Beating his mouth is though!!


His own admission is that he dropped in on England for a while so he could

stop being beaten by Europe's second layer all the time!!

How times change. In only six years he'd be lucky to podium there now!!

I would be up for it: perhaps exclude the top pro riders, and that would make it much more fun!.

Make it pro-conti teams only. No world tour teams allowed
