    Who are the upcoming new talents for 2014 ?

    So who are best of the very newest crop of upcoming talents that we might hear something from in 2014?

    I can think of more than one but am putting my hopes on a fellow Texas born rider since the last most notable Texan kinda got shot down by USADA. Hoping the atmosphere of the sport stays different than it was then.

    I'm putting my hopes on Lawson Craddock

    Craddock placed in the top 10 at both the Amgen Tour of California and the USA Pro Challenge in Colorado, taking the best young rider’s jersey in California. He also won a stage of Tryptique des Monts et Chateaux, in France, finishing 2nd overall. He signed with Argos-Shimano this year.

    GCN did a good video on this recently: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXwAN...MqoGPU_JJDh93Q

    I'm most intrigued by Matej Mohoric and Caleb Ewan.

    Tennessee's Nathan Brown, who is on their list, and Lawson Craddock are pretty evenly matched. There are certainly some others to watch not on their list but I'll let someone else have a turn at mentioning them.

    Well I don't know if guys like Lachlan Morton or Nairo Quintana should be considered "very newest" since they've been around for a few years but they are starting to come into their own recently. I expect you'll be hearing more from those guys.

    Here's a Costa Rican upcomer that's only been pro since 2011 that might do something:

    Looks like my pick Lawson Craddock, riding for Giant-Shimano, has another good shot for best young rider honors in the tour of California again this year. He's 49 seconds up on Adam Yates, Orica-GreenEdge in the BYR classification and 1:21 down in the GC in 4th place. He was only 8 seconds behind Rohan Dennis in the stage yesterday and in third place in the stage.
