Tom Pidcock says the snowy scenes of the Val di Sole cyclocross World Cup round were a good start to getting the discipline into the Winter Olympics.

Should the sport eventually make its way into the Games, it would give Pidcock, who won gold in mountain biking this summer in Tokyo, the chance to join a very select group of athletes who have won medals at both summer and winter competitions.

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.
