And I also don't get the Aru hype. He has to prove a lot more among the pros than Dombrowski. This is the problems with all Italians basically, for example I didn't get why so many people expected Moser to be the next big thing, just because of results in minor domestic races. Italians only perform on home soil, but still they get all the hype. Could be just my problem ofc. :D


with italian u23 riders you should always look to what team they rode as u23. aru rode with pallazago, the most doped team in italian u23 cycling probably. I will wait to see how much he's worth as a pro. he would be the first rider ever from palazzago to break through as a pro. other than doping, which I admitt has been reduced a lot in recent years in italy, is the focus of the big amateur teams. they want results and don';t care about developping talents. palazzago and also zalf are good examples of this. by the time a rider becomes pro they are basically finished.

moser rode with lucchini, a much saver team I think.

No one hyped Moser before turning pro. He was expected to be a talent, but there was no hype.

Aru has been far too consistent over the last years to simple disappear now as pro. Dombrowski has seen bigger discrepancies between his peak appearences and the lower ones.

So I don't see that big a difference in their PED probability. They're even in this matter I would say.

Lucchini by the way disappeared from amateur cycling after 2010's doping scandal at the Baby Giro. Not quite "safe". :p

2010's Lucchini team(s) was/were run by ex-pro Bruno Leali. Moser rode for him that year.
