Today after the draft I made new u20 lists :
http://www.cyclingforfun.org/smf/index.php/topic,2582.msg275851.html#msg275851

My 3rd choice, this season the best 19yo of me because so far I scouted or recruted zero cyclists who were sold.
A potential good climb-sprinter and parhaps with a bit of imagination a good Tour de France GC cyclist.
For sale, starting bid just 1,-

What do you guys think about this guy?
My first impression was nice Wage and Nice Cobblestone so thought he can be a Dauphine tour rider.
But after plugging him into the GV calcs, he does not look better than other riders I have.

I wouldn't worry about GV stats for tours on a 19 year old.  I'd think about what your training is going to be, and how much he matches it.  Oh and talent level, I believe talent is more important on training tourers than specialists.

I agree with Telamon ; not good  :'(
Because of your read marked stats ; stamina, flat, technique and downhill.
Too many skills ( 4 ) are not good than, in fact , I would even fire him.
But I have to agree he looks (in my opnion) misleading with his great other skills like climbing, aggressiveness and teamwork. He would have had potential for sure (with a low GV, but I don't judge potential on GV too much) to compensate a few bad skills with his great other stats, but 4 bad skills is unfortunatly too many.

Thanks. I guess I just needed more peace of mind to fire him.
I agree with the comments.
He will certainly not become great in my stable since he will need multiple managers to train the bad skills.
And  I do not see him being an able domestique in the u21/u23 NT.

six (6!!) 19 year old riders at the moment. That's not good.  :-\

I pull and scout 3 riders a day but they were all 20+ and without any good skill  >:(

I am also getting a lot of 20+ year-olds.
Had two 19y olds but they weren't worth keeping.
Only 6 ... very bad ...

Look, it helps to complain, then you get 19y olds the next day  ;D
