For 2013, as per the thread title. I think he needs another season to really take off. Despite some very good results this was kind of a lost season for him, due to bad luck.

Latest rumours were that Bongiorno is going to join Farnese Vini. But they prefered to sign Junya Sano first.

There is no mention of Michael Hepburn who is the youngster on the OGE team. He is part of the Australian silver medal pursuit team with Dennis and Bobridge. He is a junior world pursuit record holder and has had plenty of excellent wins. I believe he will be free of track committments next year, so he may feature for Orica in the same vane as Durbridge did in 2012.

Parker is the U19 3000m WR holder.

It will be hard for Hepburn to find races where he can play for himself. If Durbridge has the same calendar it will lock out all the ****ty little races decided by an ITT, he will probably not be strong enough (yet) anyway. Should almost target prologues only for his first year.

I'm not too sure about Huffman. What did he show in an international u23 field? Besides, he was only 7 days into the u23 category, born on January 7th.

Where is Manfredi riding next year? I haven't been able to figure out his team. Also, Shalounov, the Russian on Lokosphinx should have made the jump this year. He won a race this year and was a trainee for RSNT in 2011. He's better than Arndt or Seldig, or any other of Katusha's youngsters.
