I believe it's way too soon to say. As it stands he looks a great classics rider, but who knows, give him a break already he's way too young.trevim said:Cannondale can use a proper rider for the future. Is he a GT prospect or more of a hilly classics rider?
Wasn't he injured this year?coimbrawu said:Mohoric has an incredible 2012 season, but his first year in U23 is a little disappointed than some people expected without the U23 WCRR champion.
So Mohoric can climb, ITT looks good although not decent in U23 WCTT, he can breakaway and looks fast. But how to develop in the pro ranks is the big question. At the moment, he is like his new teammate next season: Moreno Moser
I'm not really disagreeing there, but what makes you believe more in Formolo than Villella?fauniera said:Possibly, but i think the Ardennes could be more his thing. Formolo looks the better prospect on long climbs.
If we are talking about Italian prospects, biggest results came from Bongiorno I believe, only one year old older than Villella, some amazing results from him.Pippo_San said:I'm not really disagreeing there, but what makes you believe more in Formolo than Villella?
They both look like interesting GT prospects, yet Villella won me as the real deal with his 2013.
really? I didn't hear anything for his injury.greenedge said:Wasn't he injured this year?
Simple answer to his development- he gains experience, matures...
Moser this year won SB and came 3rd on Alpe D Huez- pretty good Sure he did not continue as great as we all expected but still- cut him some slack.
he, ryo's word still true to the dayRyo Hazuki said:mohoric is definitelky not natural climber or itt rider. I don't think he will become any force in gt's therefore. but he can become a monster in classics, his downhil skills are something I've never seen before, maybe on par with savoldelli in actual skill
Yes, and LBL. But all from breakaways. And all those were in his peak climbing year in his 30s. It took years to get there. Mohoric could get to that level of climbing, eventually. He's not all that far already, judging by the Gran Sasso stage.Forever The Best said:
Yeah, I knew they were from breakaways. But I doubt Mohoric will be that good of a climber, it would be a waste of the talent imo. Also I think Mohoric was dropped convincingly on Gran Sasso.GuyIncognito said:Yes, and LBL. But all from breakaways. And all those were in his peak climbing year in his 30s.

He almost has been, this is already his fifth season. Love watching this guy, phenomenal descender. A classic jack of all trades, not a TT guy but can hold off a bunch (see his Vuelta stage win) and can be up there in sprints, either small groups (see his win a few days ago) and in larger groups (always up there in Catalunya).johnymax said:As it's been mentioned, is hard to believe he's still only 23yo. It feels like he's been in WT since forever.
