In Kortrijk it was Wout van Aert’s turn to make his comeback in the field, Sunday it is up to Tom Pidcock.
There may still be more attention towards Wout van Aert, but Tom Pidcock’s return should certainly not pass unseen. The 21-year-old Briton won Paris-Roubaix among the juniors on the road and became world time trial champion that same year. In the field, he has also collected some jerseys for the youth categories.
In Tabor, the first World Cup sector is on the program for Pidcock. Chris Mannaerts was able to ask him a few questions.
Pidcock is happy to be back but already reveals that not too much should be expected of him. “I still feel a bit rusty and have already fallen three times over the obstacles”, he laughs. “It will be a fast cross”, he thinks.
For the time being he is still driving around without expectations. “It doesn’t really matter to me for this race. It will be interesting to ride with Van Aert on Sunday”, the cheerful Briton concludes.
Sometimes we still can’t resist when such a cyclist passes by. Today debut Wout. Tomorrow that of @Tompid in the @UCIcyclocrossWC in Tabor. He is now driving his first training laps here in the Czech Republic. pic.twitter.com/NTfpcXhffw
