Tom Pidcock will join Dylan van Baarle as a team leader for Ineos Grenadiers in Friday’s E3 Saxo Bank Classic after the young British rider’s impressive results bolstered his Classics campaign.

Ineos has been hit by several injuries with a fractured scaphoid meaning Gianni Moscon will not ride the Classics. Luke Rowe is riding this week’s Volta a Catalunya, while Michał Kwiatkowski has been diagnosed with a fractured rib after racing Strade Bianche, Tirreno-Adriatico and Milan-San Remo.
