Yeah, I read about Debruyne being injured. Hopefully he'll be back for the later season!I was wondering why Ramses Debruyne wasn't featuring in either Baby Giro or Course de la Paix U23. He's a climber/GC guy, so i'd have expected him there. Turns out he's been suffering with a knee injury for a while.
It's easy to oversee guys in this category, with guys like Ponomar, Brenner, Simmons, Van Wilder, Evenepoel and even Pogacar... all still being within the age bracket of U23 races.
Lotto got De Lie at Giro though, he should be able to net them nice results. Only a 1st year U23 but should be good enough already to be prominent in flat/hilly stages.
The other guys I'm not that familiar with but according to a Directvelo interview they are all going for stages in different terrains. They haven't raced much, so might be coming in undercooked early in the race.
