Quinn Simmons will follow in the footsteps of Remco Evenepoel, skipping the U23 ranks and heading straight for the WorldTour, signing with Trek-Segafredo following victory in the junior men’s road race at the UCI Road World Championships.

The American triumphed in Yorkshire in spectacular fashion, attacking alone some 33km from the finish. It was the latest feat in a meteoric rise for the 19-year-old, who rode his first road race less than two years ago after previously specialising in mountain biking.
