Default Junior racing - The stars of the future

Who will be the best juniors in 2013?

The Danish guys always seem to do good in the juniors and they got some good names for next year aswell.

Pedersen and Eg will probably have good rides in 2013. Other names that could feature in 2013: Van der Poel, Burton, Van Hooydonck, Curran.

Who am I fogetting?

Mathias krigbaum will be a beast in the tt's.

There's also Casper pedersen who will ride his first year as junior. This year he won the national championships in both tt and road race in u17 and got third in the junior road race, being the only one able to follow some of the strong roskilde-junior guys

Krigbaum will indeed probably have the best chances on becomming world champion in the TT. Although I think he has an advantage on a lot of the other guys the way he is build, I think he is a little further then most guys so im not sure about his future potential.

Havent heared of Casper Pedersen yet but he surely sounds like a talent. What are his strong points? As you said he can time trial, and what kinda stage was the road race? Hills?

People born in those years are not guys. They are children.

Next year look out for Jack Edwards. The guy is a first year U19 rider - and generally a pursuiter/points racer, but then turned around and won the NSW State Kieren title...He also looked great in the NSW Criterium series recently - against guys like Sutton and Matthews, and he's only 16.
