By the time they hit the mountains Sosa will be like 10 minutes behind.
This guy if probably one of the worst Time Trialists out there. Not to mentions how much time he would lose in a cross wind. But I'd love to see him ride hard in the mountains. If he has any energy left.

The Giro is not really known for its cross-winds.

Good! :)
 
Although it might be nice for the lads to stage hunt, I really think it would be better if the younger lads learn and understand they way a team needs to ride over three weeks to win a Grand Tour. If it is possible to win a stage while rehearsing the roles they would be called on to perform in the future helping Egan or The Top Dawg win a Grand Tour, all the better.

If Sky goes for GC it will be Sivakov I reckon. He's actually got a decent ITT.
When was the last time someone as young as Sivakov finished a GT in the top10 overall?

I thought Pinot did it in 2012 but now I checked that he was 22 back then while Sivakov is still 21.
Enric Mas was 23 at last year's Vuelta.
And Valverde was 38. What's your point?

Maybe we have to go all the way back to Andy Schleck in 2007? That said - Sivakov is not getting into any top 10.

Yep, I just went back and checked. Noone has been younger than Schleck since Schleck.

A few have top 10'ed as 22-year-olds: Barguil, Gesink and Pinot.
 
Sam Oomen was also 22 at last year's Giro. Warren Barguil was 22 at the 2014 Vuelta. Pinot, as mentioned, was 22 at the 2012 Tour. Robert Gesink was 22 at the 2008 Vuelta. That seems to be the cut-off date and we would be looking at Andy Schleck at the 2007 Giro as the last 21-year-old to hit the top 10 (though it was 21 years and 11-and-a-half months!). We also have going back slightly further, Damiano Cunego winning the Giro as a 22-year-old, of course.

Though it's very tempting to point out Niewiadoma and Tuhai in the 2016 Giro Rosa, mind ;)

The question was about young riders in the top 10 of a GT GC. Enric Mas happens to fit that category at last year's Vuelta. It seems 22/23 not 21 is the age most likely for a first break through with a top 10 in a GT.
