Default Best young riders for 2013?

Who will be the excellent young riders this year (other than the obvious ones, Sagan, Moser, Deg, Demare, etc)? Who are the new kids on the block itching to show themselves?

Well he's pretty well known. I expect riders like Andrea Manfredi to have a good year this year. Or Lutsenko should do well at Astana.

Some young riders that will be making the jump to world tour that could do very well in the future are Joe Dombrowski, Ian Boswell, Fabio Aru, Warren Barguil, and Bob Jungels. These guys are definitely ones to watch in the coming years.

Luke Durbridge, Carlos Betancur, Moreno Moser and Wilco Keldermann to build on solid first years.

Joe Dombrowski, Fabio Aru and Jay McCarthy to have good first years in the pro ranks.

Funny, no one mentions Cattaneo anymore. I don't expect too much of him either.

Rohan Dennis should have some good results next year. I also expect Sepulvada to have some decent results in the smaller French .1 classics.
Too bad he rides for Bretagne next year, he deserved a WT team imo
