There's a wealth of talent to choose from when it comes to picking out the best male riders aged 25 or under. To narrow the choice, we've restricted this particular list to those riders who had contracts with WorldTour teams in 2015.

That means there's no place for the likes of Jack Haig and Soren Kragh Andersen, who have signed up to join Orica-GreenEdge and Giant-Alpecin respectively for 2016, and who impressed at the Tour de l'Avenir.
