Owain Doull
 
Claiming your first professional victory is always special and for the Welshman that moment came on the very first day of February. Breaking clear with Luke Rowe on stage three of Herald Sun Tour, Doull was able to get his arms raised. Rowe also deserves a huge amount of credit, while Doull was able to tee up another first a few days later by leading out our next nominee.

Kristoffer Halvorsen
 
January saw the young Norwegian on the verge of victory. February saw him get that elusive first Team Sky win. The final day of Herald Sun Tour was a memorable one, with Halvorsen taking advantage of a perfect lead-out to take the win. An impressive sprint showing in elite company at UAE Tour showed he is carrying good form into the spring.

Ivan Sosa
 
Amid the incredible scenes of Tour Colombia there was a standout performance from Ivan Sosa. Riding his first race in Team Sky colours he finished second and won the mountain classification, riding an assured race despite the intensity of the surroundings. With a number of professional victories already to his name the future looks incredibly bright for Sosa.

Dylan van Baarle
 
Starting his year Down Under, Van Baarle brought the Australian block of racing to a perfect conclusion with overall victory at Herald Sun Tour. His first stage race success since the 2014 Tour of Britain, the Dutchman put in a superb ride up Arthurs Seat to make sure of victory, finishing second on the queen stage. Here's hoping a strong start to the year sets Dylan up well for the Classics.
