2012 Breakthroughs?

by seabass89   February 17, 2012  

Just curious who people will break though this year?

Lets throw some names out there;

Simone Ponzi
Ben Hermans
Peter Kennaught
Sep Vanmarcke
Alexandre Geniez
and my personal hope Vegard Stake Laengen

What do you think?

It depends on what you mean by break through?

A couple of those names above have been pro for a number of years

But i want to see Luke Rowe doing well

Some of the guys on the domestic scene here will surely be grabbing the attention of some world tour teams.

Zak Dempster (Aus) lost out after his staigaireship at HTC, and has now joined the Endura super team. I'm expecting them to dominate in the UK this year, with riders like Ian Bibby and Rob Partridge.

Look no further than the UK for up and coming breakthrough talent.

For Sky i think Sergio Henao might surprise a few and a young lad from Rabobank Jetse Bol.

If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it. Gaius Julius Caesar.

Yes Gkam, I am thinking of those who have been pro's but as young riders really are going to shine through and pull of a few surprises/stage wins etc.

I would even say some of them are really good domestique choices as they might suddenly go ahead and challenge for wins - even though they are young and cheap..

I know for certain that Thibaut Panot will be in my TdF team, and I am almost certain he'll be there!
