IIRC in last year's Belgian Nats, #topsport started with all 24 riders.

You have to give them credit, though... it worked.



I wonder how many of this apparent Vendée-U supersquad will ever make it at the top level. Having good young riders is one thing, but turning them into the next Coquard, Pinot or - dare I say - Voeckler is a whole other challenge.

And given recent comments from JV about Pierre Rolland, I'm not sure it's going to be quite the conveyor belt they would like.
