In order to second Carlo's post I remember discovering Robert Gesink when he was European TT champion as a junior. When he turned pro, I didn't see his first results immediately and was told he rather was a climber. I said what? Also Marc De Maar won the Classique des Alpes as a U23 but as a pro if ever there's a style of races he was a specialist at is the cobbles. Dumoulin was not really a Time Trialist in the youth categories either, I think. So I agree with Carlo, those races are good to notice the best riders but not really the type of races they would be good at as pros.
