 Is this the most dominant U23 season we've ever seen with Riley amos? 8/9 wins with the last slot being 2nd? Obviously still lots of racing to be had but not sure there has ever been another rider with that level of performance in U23.

 Someone went undefeated, Mona maybe? But for the men, I’m not sure.

 @shorttravelmag: Yes, she did. But it was only 6 XCO races. Much shorter season (post covid), no olympics and no XCC. Still utter dominance to be sure.

 Vidaurre Kossman had 7 XCO wins in U23 in just 2 years ago. Not saying that is better or worse than Amos' season he has on the go, only that dominant seasons in U23 aren't necessarily that rare. That said, I think Amos will be very competitive very quickly once he moves up to elite. He's really good.

 @Ginsu2000: Yeah the dominant U23s definitely seem to come around more often for sure. Then it takes them a little while to warm up in elites

 @Ginsu2000: The problem for them is Vidaurre is probably the new Nino.

 @wilsonians: I agree, it usually does take some time, at least on the men's side. I think Amos might buck that trend though and find himself a few top 10 results pretty quickly after making the leap. I guess we'll see!

 @packfill - Has been this way for years. Those two have been egging each other on since they were 12.

 I wonder what the Trek factory team will look like in 2 more years. I am sure they want to keep these young guns under their brand, but what happens with their current elite riders. Also, I am sure some other teams will be making some good offers as well.

 They only have Anton Cooper on the men's side for TFR. Given his pretty lackluster results over the last couple years I could see him leaving if they wanted to bring up the 2 Riley's. But given that Amos is already on TFR, they have the ability and space to just keep him without any change to the status quo really.

 Can't help but think there may be big changes; Dascalu is unlikely to be riding, Cooper always seems injured or ill. Jolanda & Evie's contracts are up - do they stay or move on?
