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.

Unfortunately, working as part of a team is - with very few exceptions - what new, young pros would have to do. An interesting conundrum. Glad that I'm a) not good enough to be a pro cyclist[1] and b) too old to be a neo-pro.
