Since I was the last post about 2 years ago, I re-read the description about how this group can watch and learn. What? USA pros road won by U23, USA pro ITT won by U23.
Entry level and U23 are different.

For U23 - what is there to learn? And they don't do forums.
Maybe the level should be U14? Then some U14s can out power USA pros.

I think this sub forum needs to go. Nobody comments on it and the whole idea is wrong.

This is not a claim on what riders are capable of, but what they actually do. Strava will validate that. Kids race fast. Very fast.

What they CAN do? I'd give it to the pros 90% of the time, but 17 year olds have won worlds in track speed in the last 5 or so years. So for speed and what can be done, they may win that too.

But had we not shut down racing I think the LUX juniors were better bets than many USA pro teams for USA races this year. Remove the gear handicap and we would see.

I guess you can also look at the TdF and see how the U23s are doing.
