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.

I was there and the race was more a question of how Roelandts lost than how Van Hecke won. ;)

Yeah, not many of them, one would suppose. As has been pointed out recently by Jimmy Casper, youngsters don't want to ride as a team because it means they're less likely to get noticed.
