Tom Pidcock will ride the cyclocross World Championships in Arkansas this weekend on the new Pinarello Crossista F, where he will be aiming to add the rainbow bands to the junior and under-23 versions and starts as one of the big favourites.

With no Wout van Aert or Mathieu van der Poel the 22-year-old Brit is still not counting his chickens, but told Cycling Weekly that compared to the Olympics, when he won gold in the mountain bike cross-country, the pressure seems “relatively tranquil.”
