Brits on Tour!

Leeds born Tom Pidcock is joined by fellow Brits Dan Tulett hailing from Kent, and Oxford's Emily Wadsworth. Dan is a former National Junior Mountain Bike champion, while Emily’s formative years were spent with British Cycling’s MTB programme.


Aim High in the Low Country

The riders will race as TP Racing in 2018-19 in three Belgium and Netherlands based series; DVV / IJsboerke Trofee, Telenet Superprestige, and Brico Cross. They'll also represent Great Britain in the Telenet Cyclo-cross World Cup.

Speaking before Rapencross, Tom Pidcock said:

“I had a good break after the Tour of Britain and have slowly been building up to the start of the Cross season. I am not sure how I will go this weekend, but I am looking forward to getting into the rhythm of racing and building strongly towards later goals."
