It's always difficult to tell with Spanish youngsters though.
The thing with Spanish U23 riders is that they hardly ever do UCI races and therefore often appear to not have many results. Most Spanish U23 races are local, and the quality there is actually rather good. But few riders make it from there to a pro team - or even just a Conti squad.

When even a guy like Jordi Simón struggled to find a team, eventually turning out first for #ecuador and now for #verva, you can imagine how it must be for those riders with less outstanding ability.
