Last lap crash denies Tom Pidcock chance of victory at X2O Badkamers Flandriencross

Pidcock contests his final races this weekend before the World Championships next Sunday

A crash on the final lap of the X2O Badkamers Flandriencross in Hamme, East Flanders, denied Tom Pidcock the chance of what would have been a fourth victory this cyclocross season.

The Brit had been battling it out with the three Belgians Laurens Sweeck, Toon Aerts and Eli Iserbyt, as well as the Dutchman Lars van der Haar, with Pidcock leading the trio of Belgians into the closing section of the last lap of the race.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
