Nice, didnt know that. Just looked at his results saw he was very strong as a junior aswell, strange that he slipped my attention. But now I have a new guy to follow!

Dylan van Groenewegen has caught my interest too, I think this is his most impressive result, considering he is from 1993, this race had WT riders in it and was almost 200km:

I can give it a try! Not a lot of time to elaborate though!

Loic Vliegen – Belgian talent who oozes of charisma. Excellent acceleration on the hills. Could be a future contender in all the Ardennes classics.

Silvio Herklotz – German powerhouse. Very strong climber for his seize. Good cycle-crosser as well.

Matej Mohoric – Tried to describe above.

Federico Zurlo – Italian wonder-boy. Right now he masters almost everything, but I know he aims to compete in the spring classics. Trained by Marcel Tinazzi (French ex prof) and Cristian Citton (World championship on track)

Sebastian Henao – Cousin to Sergio Luis Henao from Sky. Great climber and solid against the clock. Possesses the same mental strength as his cousin.

Fausto Masnada – Italian grimpeur. Goes uphill really, really fast!

T.J Eisenhart – Stage-race material. Explosive climber, very different style from all the other diesel Americans ala TJVG – Talansky, Dombrowski ect ect. Also a good TTer.

Umberto Orsini – Nephew of Andrea Tafi. Great climber. 1.90cm tall. Prefers constant rhythm.

Jose Tito Hernandez – Did MTB here in Colombia. Top-talent. Strong, strong climber. Ok against the clock as well.

Rodrigo Contreras – The beast from Boyaca. Strong climber and TTer. Really good prospect.

Florian Senechal – Strong as an ox. Northern classics. Maybe races like Amstel as well. Impressed at the Quick-Step training camp in 2011.

Mads Wurtz Schmidt – TT machine. Really powerful could excel on the cobbles as well.

Guillaume Martin – French grimpeur. 1.71cm and 53kg. Loves the long hard cols.

Magnus Cort Nielsen – Former MTBer. Strong all-rounder. Can climb and TT reasonable.

Aleksey Ribalkin – Yet another pocket sieze climber. Good acceralartion. Looks a bit fragile though!

Tom Bohli – Junior world pursuit champion. Stong all-rounder.

Quintin Jauregui – Cycle-crosser. Exeles on harder parcoures.

Dylan Groenewegen – Talented Sprinter. Dont know heeps about him, but he seems rather interesting.

Sonder Holst Enger – Classics material. Caught a virus after the Norwigian nationals last year and had the second part of the season ruined.

Marlen Zmorka - TT specialist. Can climb a bit, but needs to drop weight if he really wants to contender on the longer climbs.

What happened to Davide Martinelli?

Is he still at Sky or was he released?

I think Dombro is a bit explosive. The one pass MTN stages suits him very well.

Hopefully he will turn pro with a Belgian team.
