A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

If he's that talented why isn't he showing it then ?

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.

Dombrowski is, of course. But he'll probably be part of the Wiggo train.

Although it's about the biggest surprise. Maybe then it will be Duarte, and he'll surprisingly live up to Ryo's expectations ;)

Like I said in the last one, Dombro to leave Wiggo (and everyone else) behind gasping for breath.:cool:

Majka to do well, and hopefully Duarte gets a high gc placing and some good stage results so I can get some CQ points.

It should say other/mini Vino's. :D It won't be too long before they start dominating cycling.

I don't know about that, but he's certainly the oldest on the list, by a large margin.

This basically. It can only be a surprise if someone is not on the list, so other it is.

Still dont know why Ryo thinks Duarte is the more talented. I also read it in the colombians thread. You are the expert in colombian topics so i wait for your arguments:)
