Alessio Martinelli said that they raced aggressively and managed to isolate Brenner early on in the race. I think Brenner just got cooked having to chase by himself. Piccolo profited and at some point joined a leading group of 13 way before the final climb and that was the end of that.What happened to Brenner yesterday? He lost a ton of time.
Sounds familiar.Speciality not really a thing with juniors, but Cian Uijtdebroeks already winning here a 1st year, future GC-rider. He means business.
I would put Ayuso up there, instead of M. Vacek and Ponomar. That said, it's hard to determine. Applying simple logic, I'd say no one dare touch those two on Altenberg later on in the season, but the same thing was thought of Evenepoel and K. Vacek, who were challenged by a first year Tiberi. Talent always prevails in the end, and it's clear Uijtdebroeks has it in spades.Sounds familiar.
I have no idea about talents pre-junior. I've heard his name but that's about it. Is he a guy that might put some pressure on the 2nd juniors already, or is the gap with Vacek, Brenner, Ponomar... too big?
Just came across this article about Uijtdebroeks. I first heard about him when you mentioned him a while ago. I don't even know where to look for U17 news, lol.Just picked up that Jefferson Ruiz will join ASD, a junior team in Italy. He is the reigning champion of Porvenir, which he won as a first year junior. This probably means he'll be starting in Lunigiana and the Worlds. Some more competition for Brenner? Perhaps. We might have to look beyond Ayuso or Uijtdebroeks. Seems like a good dark horse to do something in Martigny.
In all honesty, as of right now I think it's mightily unfair and unjustified to put anyone in the same class as Brenner. As far as just pure talent for being made for a bike goes, he might be the best since Sagan, Kwiatkowski or Mathieu. The situation we're living in right now obviously makes it even harder with no reference or evidence in months. But hey, Uijtdebroeks is no doubt very talented, I think he'll become a very good pro and at this stage, talent alone could do the trick. The same applies to Ayuso, albeit he is more proven, who was flying like no other before the break, but is yet to show it in an international peloton. I mean, his former rival Carlos Rodriguez dominated the Spanish scene the last two years but honestly was just crap most of the time he had to cross the border.Just came across this article about Uijtdebroeks.

On the 1st of March, Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne, the first of the junior cobbled classics season was ridden on the Flemish roads.The lockdown for the coronacrisis saw all the following races deleted from the junior race calendar, and Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne would remain the only spring classic that was...www.theyoungpeloton.com
Considering he won after a 50k solo in KBK, i asssume he's also a climber that can time trial? (Well, he also won Chrono des Nations) He's exactly 6 months younger than Brenner (plus a day) but has only ridden one junior race (due to corona) since coming from the U17. Assuming Brenner is indeed in a league of his own, is it fair to expect a guy like Uijtdebroek to compete?
Closer than expected but he defends his title by 13s. The younger Lührs brother with a really strong effort in second and also a surprise in 3rd with Czasa.
