While Tom Pidcock has made a successful start to his WorldTour road career, he said that signing for the Ineos Grenadiers wouldn't mean leaving other cycling disciplines behind just yet. Having been the third man of the Mathieu van der Poel and Wout van Aert cyclocross rivalry this winter, the Brit has now revealed the mountain bike events he plans to take part in this year.

The 21-year-old has already picked up a podium at Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne and an even more impressive fifth-place finish at Strade Bianche, and Pidcock will now compete in a number of other prestigious spring Classics, including Milan - Sanremo, Gent-Wevelgem, Flèche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
