Ah, right. Nice chunk of metal in the eyebrow there Mike, though the one in your hand is a bit more memorable. Apparently he likes an uphill sprint on Australian soil. He also likes him some bling. In the very early stages of his career, he's earning it. OK, we should refrain from saying too much about a guy who was born in 1990. I mean, he was barely out of diapers when I got my first email account. But his second place at the U23 Ronde van Vlaanderen, while not terribly predictive, does at least tell us we're looking at a potential classics stud in the making. Stay tuned.
