Cyclo-cross prodigy Tom Pidcock is raffling off three of his championship jerseys to raise money for the fund set up in the memory of 15-year-old rider Charlie Craig, who tragically died suddenly in his sleep in January 2017.

Pidcock has put three jerseys up on his JustGiving page: his junior cyclo-cross world champion’s jersey, junior European champion’s jersey and his U23 World Cup leader’s jersey, all of which he worn at some point over the last year. All the jerseys have also been signed by Pidcock.

Having trained as a journalist at Cardiff University I spent eight years working as a business journalist covering everything from social care, to construction to the legal profession and riding my bike at the weekends and evenings. When a friend told me Cycling Weekly was looking for a news editor, I didn't give myself much chance of landing the role, but I did and joined the publication in 2016. Since then I've covered Tours de France, World Championships, hour records, spring classics and races in the Middle East. On top of that, since becoming features editor in 2017 I've also been lucky enough to get myself sent to ride my bike for magazine pieces in Portugal and across the UK. They've all been fun but I have an enduring passion for covering the national track championships. It might not be the most glamorous but it's got a real community feeling to it.
