Junior can already be a good indication, all the best pro (even the pro, or the best amateur...) were pretty good in Junior and most of the time in the national team.
So globaly we can have an indication, while it's almost impossible to say "this guy will be an excellent pro in 6 years", cause we have seen so many "terminator" in Junior, ended up with short pro-contract and after 2 years, retiring from cycling.
After yes, in U-22 some riders can turn from good rider to excellent rider, for many reason (physical matury, studies etc.)

I don't keep up with juniors the way I used to, but wanted to say this is a great thread. Thanks for starting it, and to those who contributed.

2013 will be a great showdown. Elie Gesbert vs Mathieu Van Der Poel.

Two phenomenons.

Van Der Poel was just insane last year!

It undoubtedly does against fellow 16 year olds, but that still doesn't account for a 16yo mixing it with some of Australia's senior pros as he did at the NSW Criterium Circuit.

I'm looking forward to junior Paris roubaix this year. I think Denmark will have a pretty strong line-up there including mads pedersen who was 10th last year in his first year as a junior.

Anyone knows what Pierre Henri Lecuisinier is up to? Did a short trainee at Europcar last summer iirc. He shows a lot of talent, will he do a tour de l'avenir?

Matthieu van der Poel is still a junior right? Seeing his cross season, he should do well on the road this year too. I think he did a road season last year, with decent results, so I assume he's going to the road this season again, but I don't know anything about his intentions to become either a road or cross cyclist in the future.

Van der Poel will probably combine it for a few more years, and then maybe has to make a decision when he turns pro.
