He's the reigning junior national, European and world cyclocross champion, has been described as the "mini-Sagan" and an "English wonder-boy" by Belgian press, and now WorldTour outfit Trek-Segafredo have supposedly tabled a joint contract offer to sign Tom Pidcock

The 17-year-old, from Leeds, has enjoyed a quite remarkable 12 months, making his name predominately in the cross scene, but also impressing on the road domestically and internationally, most notably winning the Philippe Gilbert Road Race last September, a mini version of Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
