Although I don't know how good he is at that atm.
ospina is a much different rider from quintana. he is way bigger and more "european". I expected quintana to have issues on the flat in europe. especially the first few years but he didn;t. I therefore see no reason why ospina would have.

Reason: lack of racing experience in general and in Europe specifically.

I hope Van Keirsbulck can get to show himself in 2013, but being on OPQS of course makes it hard.

Hopefully in smaller races like 'Driedaagse de Panne-Koksijde' or 'Driedaagse van West-Vlaanderen' or so.

Yes but he is also Dutch which means he probably falls 10 times a year which will eventually halt progression.
Because getting injuries means getting back to your previous level instead of improving all the time

Luca Wackermann.

He's similiar to Moreno Moser, he was European Road Champion on his first year as a Junior rider, in 2009, beating Arnaud Demare.
