Ok, but there must be a reason why all these guys sign with them in the first place.In the past 3 years they have been signing a gazillion good prospects from the u23 ranks so it's not surprising a few of them will become good riders, or even elite riders.
I can imagine them having elaborated, detailed plans for the youngsters. "This is what we do to adress this topic, this for that, at this and this point". They are probably considering a lot of small things and their schedule for the future of these prospects will be ambitious and clearly led out. That might appeal to young, ambitious riders. And in other teams it might be more like "yeah, we have this plan here for you, but it will take its time, you will learn, you will grow into the role..."Ok, but there must be a reason why all these guys sign with them in the first place.
I mean Hirschi for example, I'm a terrible scout, but signing the U23 world champion is kind of a no-brainer, surely he must have had other options.
Plottwist, they actually are Rebellins grandkidsIn addition, it's what for instance Brenner, I think, said: They have a lot of young riders, and someone at the age of 18 might feel more comfortable among others in their early twenties than among guys 10 or 15 years older, married, with kids. I sometimes forget that myself, but I remember how at 16 I was like "what, you're with a 24year old? He could practically be your granddad." And at 21 I felt so old among 18 year olds..." At that age, I guess, that can really mean something.
*Scaring Gabrielle Pilote-Fortin (she has a name you know )And I'm pretty sure the riders are allowed to do things of their own chosing in their free time; Asbjørn Kragh - for example - likes going hunting, and then he puts the kill in Asgreen's freezer, scaring Asgreen's girlfriend half to death, like... you do...
