Tom Pidcock's results this season have made him a target for many of the top teams, and he didn't disappoint with a dominant victory in the junior men race at the Cyclo-cross World Championships in Bieles, Luxembourg. Behind the 17-year-old, his two compatriots Daniel Tulett and Ben Turner tussled for the other two spots on the podium. Both crashed on the final lap on what was a very slippy course, but it was Tulett that held on to take silver with Turner in third.
