Welcome Mr. Uijtdebroeks to the "Pronunciation thread".

Strange to see 5 Belgians in the top 10 in a mountain race. That is rare...
Doing this as your first race of the year seems positive....
It seems Belgium started to invest into mountain guys as there's a bunch of young ones right now in the pro peloton that most likely will stick to being next Teuns/Benoot/Wellens. I guess Uijtdebroeks will soon have a "... is the next Evenepoel" thread.

Cian Uijtdebroeks (18) got sick of 2 second places (one being a team time trial) so he won the Reither Kogel Trophy, a 6k mountain TT, ahead of 23 year old Markus Wildauer.
Today, Serge Pauwels, currently working for Belgian Cycling and managing the young talents, said that Cian has the same weight as Pauwels had when he (Pauwels) was in top form and he already pushes the same watts as Pauwels did in top form when he was a pro.

Video of Wildauer's effort.

Then I guess Uytdebroeks - didn't it used to be spelled differently? - is the new Brenner.
No need to make a Matteo Jorgenson style thread-title, though.
It's spelled with Uij... i don't know why it's spelled differently in my previous message. I'm trying to remember if i copy/pasted part of the text with all the names, or if i misspelled it myself, because i know it isn't spelled with a "y".

Anyway, he's no Brenner (and Brenner is no Evenepoel). Uijtdebroeks wins with a lot more dominance than Brenner ever has, but is missing (like Evenepoel) some weapons that Brenner does have. Brenner is a much better "finisher", he can win sprints of small groups, and has more punch than the two Belgians.

how do you compare him to Ayuso?

To become a better bikehandler he decided together with his team to ride some cyclo cross races this winter. So he is very likely not the next Remco.
 
Looks like I've found someone who is literally a "star of the future":


Note the date? Apparently he won this race tomorrow!
So, not only do I have to deal with riders being cloned, now I also have to deal with time-travelling riders!
Perhaps whoever put it in the database is the actual time traveller and not the rider himself?
Anyway it (now) says that it's the 9th-10th of July, so there might be a stage tomorrow.

I can assure you that trying to keep the junior calendar and rider database up to scratch is both a Sisiphysian and Herculian venture.

Exciting GC battle in Ain Bugey Vairomey Tour. Cian Uijtdebroeks and Lenny Martinez finished together in stage 2 and 3 with both taking 1 stage win. Uijtdebroeks had the leader's jersey with 1 second advance after those stages, but Martinez took 2 boniseconds on stage 4 and will wear the leader's jersey going into tomorrow's final stage. Final stage got some 4-6km 6% climbs and finishes on a 9km 4,5% climb.
