Tom Pidcock confirmed for Cyclo-cross World Cup Dublin
World Champion Tom Pidcock
Cyclo-cross World Champion Tom Pidcock has confirmed that we will compete at the UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup Dublin stage on December 11th.
The British rider has confirmed he'll take the start line of the ninth stage of the competition, the first-ever stage of the Cyclo-cross World Cup to be hosted on Irish soil.
Pidcock opened his Cyclo-cross World Cup campaign in Overijse on November 20th, finishing second place after a thrilling battle with Michael Vanthourenhout.
The 23 year old is another huge addition to the Dublin stage start list after Wout Van Aert confirmed that he’ll take to the start in the Sport Ireland Campus.
The INEOS Grenadiers rider is one of cycling’s rising stars and has tasted success across three disciplines, including road and mountain biking.
Pidcock won a gold medal in cross-country mountain biking at the Tokyo Olympics last year and was one of the stars of the 2022 Tour de France as he won a mountain top finish stage on the legendary Alpe d’Huez.
Pidcock won two UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup stages last season in Hulst and Rucphen and finished on the podium of three other stages during the campaign.
