As everyone prepares for the Tour de France to start, conversations naturally focus on Team Garmin's contenders in the general classification - Giro champion Ryder Hesjedal, two-time Top 10 finisher Christian Vande Velde (left), and last year's Top 10 breakthrough Tom Danielson. But as our friends at CLIF Bar remind us in this great video, Team Garmin has always had an eye on cycling's next generation as well. And while these guys are young, they're already pushing the pace of the peloton and grabbing big wins themselves. Enjoy the interviews courtesy of CLIF Bar, and you may want to jot down the guys' names. You'll be hearing about them for quite some time.
Throughout the Tour, be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and here on the blog for updates, images and all sorts of fun, and Bicycling Magazine's Garmin Insider features exclusive content.
