Danish guy looks like a 25yo pro. Why are they always build so strong as juniors already?

Strong viking blood. :cool:

Yep. And in a couple of years, when all his peers have matured, you'll probably never hear from him again. Like most Danes.
 
Don't mind, if it was a colombian in the top-20, it was a massive achievement.

And what if he changes careers in the the near future? At least he made a choice he was happy with and has a world title to show for (even if it was junior level). That's more than 99% of cyclists in the entire world can say they have.
 
Wow that was so impressive by the Italians. 3 riders in 2nd, 3rd and 4th place with a few 100m to go, last 2 get caught and a 4th one emerges from the bunch to secure that bronze medal :) they could have won with better tactics.
Also, I'm so excited about Gazzoli, he is joining Contador's development team next year :)

Those Danes in the youth categories.. man I wonder if this one doesn't top out at 20yo
He'll be working as an accountant or mailman in three years.

How is it even possible to be this bitter? Give it a rest.
They are ruining all the fun U23 and U19 racing has.

By being better than the rest...? Broken record. No one's forcing you to watch.

Be a bit optimistic. Hopefully he'll be smart enough to spend a couple of years on a local conti team before going pro. As I've mentioned before; going pro too early seems to have been the main problem for Danish riders.

You know, just like that other massive Danish talent, Jakob Egholm. Whose best result in this past year has been a 16th place in a race called ''Hansa Bygg Kalmar Grand Prix Road Race''. :lol:

Egholm has been troubled by injuries.

I wouldn't call it being better. I would call it being more physically ready. Hence why the do *** all in the categories where they don't have that advantage anymore.
