Carlos Betancur is one to watch for sure. His performances on Italian soil in the ultra competitive late season races really need to be noted. He seems to have the punch that many Colombian riders lack. We could be seeing someone who could really be prominent in the Ardennes and also play a big role in a Giro or Vuelta lacking large TT's in the coming years.

if there's one thing colombian riders are great at and well known for it's their punch and explosiveness, in recent years uran, henao, soler, duarte, serpa etc etc

Mikel Landa
Pello Bilbao
Garikoitz Bravo

I'm hoping for at least one of these guys to break through. Maybe Bilbao and Bravo aren't up to it, but Landa is a very strong climber and should put in some fine performances in 2013

Haller won one small race stage late in the year, Tsatevich showed himself several times near the front in sprints. I still have faith in the young Austrian, though, but haven't seen enough to warrant a spot on my CQ team

Emilien Viennet might be a surprise and get chances to shine for FDJ already this year, and Danny Van Poppel seems to be a promising young sprinter too. Coquard is obviously going to be a fantastic signing for Europcar.
