Yorkshireman Tom Pidcock adds Paris-Roubaix Juniors win to his world, European and national cyclo-cross titles
British rider Tom Pidcock won the prestigious Paris-Roubaix Juniors on Sunday.
Pidcock had put in a solo move in the closing stages of the race, holding off the chase group to take a convincing victory.
The 17-year-old Yorkshireman adds the win to his junior world, European and national cyclo-cross titles.
In addition to his cyclo-cross success, Pidcock has also taken wins on the road – claiming the La Philippe Gilbert Juniors and Junior Tour of Wales in 2016.
Pidcock is the third British rider to win Paris-Roubaix Juniors, following in the tyre tracks of Geraint Thomas (2004) and Andy Fenn (2008).
Several large road teams have already expressed an interest in Pidcock, who turns 18 in July this year.
Trek-Segafredo, BMC and Dimension Data have been rumoured to be interested in Pidcock, although it is likely that he will join a feeder or development team first to nurture his talent further.
