Edvald Boasson Hagan, 25 today.

Eddy is the current Norwegian Time Trial Champion (5 years in a row) and also considered one of the biggest rising talents in the sport, being ranked as no. 3 in the world by the UCI when he was just 22 years old.

And Greg van Avermaet, 27 today.

Winner of Paris-Tours in 2011 and with strong rides this season at the Tour of Flanders-5th Omloop Het Nieuwsblad-5th Strade Bianche-5th Brabantse Pijl-5th, Avermaet is a capable and consistently strong rider who, lets face it, is fairing slightly better than some of the more high profile stars on the BMC roster this year!!!

Both hugely talented riders, yet to really show their full potential. Although time is definitely on their side.

Happy Birthday gentlemen!
