He earned himself a rainbow jersey when he beat the Slovenian Matej Mohoric and the German Maximilian Schachmann in the junior TT. However there was already a compelling reason to watch the progress of the 18 year old; specifically, an astronomical lab test reading which marks out his VO2 Max as reportedly the highest ever recorded.

VO2 max, or maximal oxygen uptake, is a measure of the body’s ability to transport and use oxygen during incremental exercise, and is be one strong indicator of both fitness and also an individual’s physical talent. Five time Tour de France winner Miguel Indurain reportedly had a VO2 max of 88 ml/kg/min, five points higher than Lance Armstrong and far, far above that of a regular male. Greg LeMond’s reading is even bigger, with 93 ml/kg/min.

However a test carried out recently on Svendsen at the University of Lillehammer saw the young Norwegian rider max out at a sensational 97.5 ml/kg/min, believed to be the highest ever recorded.

Here's a good Q&A with Joe Dombrowski.

Hope he continues to develop and doesn't rush a big move.

EDIT: OOPS!!! Seems to be a repost of the link!  :-[

I think stagiaires don't count for the 30-rider limit.

They don't, afaik

Radioshack had 32 riders at the end of last year

Well Jungels has probably done enough to justify a Stagiere place, but RSNT already have 30 riders so a team like Sky (already rumoured to be interested last year) could be able to prise him away from the luxembourgeois set up, starting in August.

Yeah after his recent win in Fleche Du Sud Jungle Bob now must be considered one of, if not the biggest young talents around.

Guess he is already linked with the Leopard set up, in what ever form that team exists in at the end of their inevitable self destruct.

seems to be a nice guy too and think he has a calm and sensible head on him

Great result for Tom Scully as well in 3rd, and obviously have to have the standard grouping of Young Rabo's that will help raise the hopes of the Dutch fans before disappointing miserably at the Pro level  :D

Classement Top 9 :

1 - Jungels (Leopard-Trek CT)
2 - Lampaert (EFC-Omega Pharma-Quick Step)
3 - Scully (Chipotle-First Solar)
4 - Bush (Chipotle-First Solar)
5 - Verhelst (EFC-Omega Pharma-Quick Step)
6 - Hofland (Rabobank Continental)
7 - Zepunkte (Rabobank Continental)
8 - Godrie (Pays-Bas)
9 - Sénéchal (EFC-Omega Pharma-Quick Step)

Jungels bridged to a couple of different breaks and then attacked with just over 20km to go.  If it wasnt already clear, he shows himself to be a huge talent.
