U23 races and talents

Great leadout from Tudor last climb

Torres not far off Widars level and he's also only 18 years old. Gotta wonder if the level isn't just pretty low this year.
To be fair there are a lot of riders still age eligible like Pelizarri/Del Toro/Christen/Uijtebroeks/L Martinez that have already moved beyond age group races. That goes a long way towards explaining a drop in top level.

Apparantly the level hasn't dropped because of talented 18 year olds entering the U23. The problem is that they are gone a year later so the talent pool is probably thinner than before.
