Was just talking with friends about this very topic other night who we should expect to break out on the tour in 2013.


Going cover a series of young talents to follow in 2013 ,first one is up on my blog


but going back to the topic of juniors its so hard to know, i like riders who have had another focus than just cycling honestly you want someone who is knocking on the door and shows glimpses, anyone peaking at 18 is not going make it in pro ranks

its not easy for young lads coming in way tour is at moment pressure to earn points over working for team got get balance right.

Ye I saw, although he didnt really show much on international level. He was good in national belgium races though (even though he is Canadian). Maybe I missed something but I dont really see anything big in him.

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?
the juniors don't mean much. especially teh danes are always a joke. they dominate as juniors because they live as pro's already and then as pro's they suck massively: lund, pedersen, berendt hansen, steensen. etc etc etc

He will be riding with the pro's in Bay Classic hopefully he gets a chance to do a sprint for himself. But he is in the team with Cantwell and Ewan so he might have domestic duties.

Saw he had very impresive results on the track lately in the U19 category as a 16 year old. Hopefully he will be doing some riding in Europe the upcomming season as Ewan did this season.
