We only have a top-5 so far. Osorio, D. Muñoz, Mäder +5, C. Muñoz +9 and Vlasov +9. And indeed LosBrolin, his team reported a top-10 for Williams.

No surprise at all - Stannard is a classics type rider as opposed to a climber - Mitchelton Bike Exchange/Under 23's don't have a quality climber this year unless they bring over Alexander Evans who can climb but not much else - Nothing wrong with going for stages.

Cristian Muñoz is in the break and has more than three minutes advantage. They are playing this perfectly thus far.

Indeed, he's been racing in Spain every year since at least 2015. And I think las two years he's living in Spain.
However, it's a remarkable performance, as it's his debut at european level.

I though this was supposed to be a relatively modest crop of new Colombian talents? It doesn’t seem like it.

It's hard to assess the actual talent of this crop of the Colombians, seeing the quality of the field is an unknown - Last year there were probably 7 or 8 outstanding talents that were well exposed.

I also find it hard to rate the quality of the field.
Nice showing by João Almeida, the guy seems to be a huge talent, he was already impressive last year when he rode for Unieuro, who haven't been invited, mainly because they are now racing with a Bulgarian license as Trevigiani Phonix - Hemus 1896.

Bagioli, Innocenti, Hirschi, Errazkin, Paret-Peintre, Leknessund, and Pogacar ain't here. Those are considered to be amongst the best prospect of this class.

For some, this Giro is a great stepping stone to perhaps a contract in Europe (Matxin has been all over the Colombian NT), but the results don't tell the whole story. Later on in the year, when all the best U23's gather together in l'Avenir, I don't think anyone, apart from Williams, who is doing well here will be at the top of the rankings. That's without including the U23's who already have a pro contract and could very well go on and dominate l'Avenir and the Worlds.

Edit: U23 is perhaps a better wording than prospect, as I don't see all that much in Paret-Peintre. Hasn't gotten that much better in the past four seasons.

Talking about the U23 WC, they are going to be completely ****. Here's a list of pro's who have a realistic chance of riding the U23 Worlds: Egan Bernal, Dani Martinez, Ivan Sosa, David Gaudu, Valentin Madouas, Bjorg Lambrecht, Harm Vanhoucke, Steff Cras, Lucas Hamilton, Michael Storer, Jai Hindley, James Knox, Jhonatan Narvaez, Nicola Conci, Neilson Powless, Brandon McNulty, Pavel Sivakov, Mark Padun, Yevgeniy Gidich, Edward Dunbar.

Race over for any non-pro U23 lmao.
