I could only have been fooled if the right guy's surname hadn't been mentioned. Tadej Valjavec wasn't exactly a no name.
Felix Kristoff is, however, in fact the little brother of Alexander!
A storm is approaching and his name is Theodor.

RE: Clemmensen. He might be the big Danish first year junior currently, but there is a dark horse coming from the depths. His name is Albert Philipsen. Road experience: next to 0. However, he is making the leap this year, and I feel like he is one of those special riders who just excel whatever they do. He comes from the mountain bike, where he is the European champ, but had little to no problem making the transition to CX and just casually finished 8th in the World Championships in what was his third ever cross. He could be a big revelation this year.
There's also Carl Emil Just Pedersen, but that's for another time.
