Pidcock has been dominant this season, winning the majority of the Junior Men’s races he’s lined up at, including the UEC European Continental Championships, Zonhoven Superprestige, Namur World Cup, and the British National Championships.

In Hoogerheide, Pidcock took a step up from his 2016 result, after earning silver last year behind Jens Dekker, while teammate Turner took a quantum leap, moving up from 29th last year to 2nd.
