I know he got a win the other day, but I've always considered Dani Navarro to be under rated. Amazed that it was his first ever win as a professional.

i agree, but I am sick of all the hype American, dutch, English got here on the forum and nobody mention this guy.

Sorry mate, I am sick and tired of all those cheating Italian guys and I would like to see much more of one of their youngsters before I can seriously consider someone I've heard little of.

C'mon boys and Girls! let's put some people out there that have good results but sit so squarely in the shadows of bigger names that they are very overlooked, though they are always provacateurs in races. Men like:
Matti Breschel, sitting behind Spartacus and the Schleck Bros. or
Johnny Hoogerland of Vacansoleil who really lit up last year, but whose team won't be at the TdF this year, which is also leaving out Bjorn Leukeman too, who is on the same team, and who is a real go getter.
IMHO, those are some underrated boys that we should be paying attention to, moving forward into the future.:)

Finnally someone remembers Johnny Hoogerland last years performances!!! Quite underrated. And, obviously, Szmyd!!!
