Out of the above, Kanter and Philipsen definitely deserve to make the list too.
As Kanter is the German U23 champion racing for a WT devo squad, and Philipsen has actually turned pro already with #axeon, I wouldn't say they are so much 'riders to watch for their breakthrough' as they are 'riders who haven already broken through'. :P

*de #tirol Johannes Schinnagel is also someone to watch. Has been with Austrian teams for all his U23 years, now (in his final U23 year) he's getting good results in UCI races too. Methinks that with their *at connection, #bora will be giving him a call sometime.
*uk #wiggins Gabz Cullaigh has been at or near the top of the U23 scene for some years now, too, and he is a 1996 as well. The next #sky classics hardman?

#virtu Kasper Asgreen: doesn't need an introduction. Definitely pro material, probably stayed with #virtu in the hope that the team will step up to at least ProConti next season. If they don't, he ought to look elsewhere - he absolutely has the potential for a pro contract at a foreign team.
Well, that went faster than expected.
Asgreen is off to #quickstep effective immediately. :cool
