Did someone suggest Luke Rowe earlier? Not sure i see that one.

Sagan, Phinney and hopefully Thomas could challenge in the future.

Probably a stupid question; but has Tony Martin any chance at PR?

Nah. Cant see it. Not pure cobbler at least.

More of puncheur that's good on cobbles. Sort of Gilbert style, Ronde suits him, but Robuaix won't as much.

Phinney should be the BMC leader for PR next year. Hushovd can be plan B, although I think he's time has passed.

Yes, almost too obvious, so I forgot. Degenkolb was another good mention by others.

Florian Senechal has the potential to become a real monster in the classics.

Jasper Stuyven obvious is incredibly gifted.

Guillaume Van Keirsbulck has a lot of class as well; I reckon he will be very, very good!

Ignazio Moser and Andzs Flaksis both have the physic for races like Paris-Roubaix.

Victor Manakov is a bright prospect as well!

Look at Chavanel's career path for a perfect example.
