Tom Pidcock in Yorkshire on lockdown

Tom Pidcock in Yorkshire on lockdown

Tom Pidcock is the most exciting young cycling talent to emerge in the UK in the last couple of years, but really, it's in the mud and under the grey skies of continental Europe where he has impressed the most. Getting silver early in 2020 at the cyclocross world championships in Switzerland was the first time a Brit broke the stranglehold the Dutch and Belgians have had on the podium. Normally at this time of year, Flanders is home for Tom, but the pandemic sweeping the planet meant he headed back to the family house in Leeds in Yorkshire, where he spoke to me from the dining room turned pain cave.  See for privacy and opt-out information.
