That just happens if you are riding in the shadow of Remco....
And anyway; at 17-18, predicting future results is just very difficult. You have no idea where a rider is in his performance curve , how much roon for improvement do you have at a certain age . And at the same time it is possible Henri will not improve anymore and never be a decent pro rider. So let's hope his environment made sure there is still room for improvement.

After his exploits at the Giro Gloag is in the top 12 and finished a position behind Irishman Ryan and infront of other British Leo Hayter.

Interesting fact about Gloag and Hayter (younger brother of team Ineos rider Ethan) is just over a year ago they were teammates from VC Londres at the Junior Tour of Wales where Gloag got the better of both Hayter and Ryan.
 
Rune Herregodts just manages to stay away to the line and wins Paris-Tours U23 in front of the approaching field lead by Jordi Meeus. Must have been really close.
Went in the attack from the start, got rid of his companions with 55 km to go and finished after 178 km with a few seconds on the peloton. He only had 30 seconds left with 10 km to go, and the European champion Hvideberg came close with a counterattack but couldn't bridge.

Impressive!
 
Indeed about 180km attack that started with 3 riders in total and ended with a win of 2 seconds of about 30meter... that was indeed impressive. Rune is really strong at the moment. Probably will take Belgian CC U23 ITT in 2 weeks.
