Probably one or two of Kenny Elissonde, Mattia Cattaneo, George Bennet, Romain Bardet and Larry Warbasse will also ride.

Most talented already looks Dombrowski, then Kelderman alongside Aru. Can't categorize as Duarte as ''talent'', at this age he should be a class rider, which he isn't.
duarte is often injured and last year he sucked because of undertraining with entire coldeportes team

duarte has always shown the most takent in climbing of all of his generation riders. the show me made on la linea in 2009 is the most impressive I've ever seen.

also in europe when not injured he has shown his class quite a lot

I do think we are just listing young names that will surprise, but meanwhile it's probably someone much older than will surprise the most.

This should be a thread called who will be best young rider at Giro mostly right now

P.S. Fair enough Ryo.

Dombrowski. The only Sky rider on the list.

In all seriousness he is immensely talented and I cant wait to see what he does. In terms of who I would chose if I was betting that would probably be Duarte or Betancur. Duarte maybe inconsistent but he does seem pretty good and Betancur is class. The others may be better in the long run but they are mostly in their first/second years of pro racing and have not shown to much on the highest level.

That's why I was wondering if he'll even ride, I can't find any decent results. But if he performs it would be a big surprise for sure.

I thought the question was who will be the biggest surprise- so therefore i voted Chaves.

The best young rider i think will be Kelderman- he has gone well at the WT before, he has a good ITT and unlike Dombrowski who will have to work for Wiggins full pelt and probably not be the last man pulling up the climbs, Blanco might allow him some freedom to target the best young riders jersey. Majka will also threaten.

Wackermann if he rides should be good- also Wesley Kreder.

Dombrowski is going to be Wiggins' boy in the high mountains. It's a shame he won't be able to go for a stage win or two, the kid can climb.
