Tom Pidcock is the new e-mountain bike world champion. The young Briton won the muddy track ahead of the French Jerome Gilloux and the Dane Simon Andreassen. Sven Nys made his (temporary) comeback as a rider at the championship, but did not appear in the piece. He turned 19th.
It turned into a mud frenzy at the World Championship for electric mountain bikes in Austria. And it was the Frenchman Gilloux who quickly took a nice lead on the slippery course. He developed it steadily and so France seemed on the way to gold.
But that was beyond Tom Pidcock. The young Briton has been in excellent shape in recent weeks and apparently also gets along well on an electric bicycle. He gave chase and got hold of Gilloux on the last lap.
Gilloux had to be content with silver. The bronze went to Andreassen, the Dane who won a World Cup mountain bike in Nove Mesto last week.
Sven Nys represented the Belgian colors. His brief comeback ended with a 19th place finish 9’55 “behind winner Pidcock.
