Tom Pidcock is aiming for an even better performance in the UCI Cyclo-Cross World Championship that will be held from January 28-31. He expects his form to improve to new limits, promises a very entertaining cycling season. The Cyclo-Cross World Championship will be held in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Pidcock who rides for Ineos Grenadiers is very confident for the next weekend, is expecting a “Good Battle”. The battle for the rainbow jersey would be hard but there are good chances that Pidcock may actually win this one.
My condition will be good next week. It’s going to be a hard, fast race and a good battle. Everyone is in with a chance, it’s going to be interesting next week.
The Cyclo-Cross World Championship will be missing some of the biggest players like Wout Van Aert and Mathieu van der Poel. Apart from that, there will be a heavy onslaught of the best riders from Dutch and Belgium Teams, no matter what happens, this cycling season will definitely be remembered in the history books.
Tom Pidcock is an Olympic gold medalist in cyclo-cross racing, and in this season, the chances of him winning the championship are highly likely. Out of the six UCI World Cup rounds, he also already conquered five.
The competition this time around also seems very tough, the Belgium team is sending extremely skilled riders like Eli Iserbyt, Quinten Hermans, Toon Aerts, Jens Adams, and many more. The Dutch team on the other hand are going to round off with European Champion Lars van de Haar and Corné van Kessel. This will be an exciting World Championship indeed.

Feeling competitive, Pidcock stated,
There are a lot of people who can win next week. The course is pretty similar and it’s going to be a good race.
The weekend races on the other hand were not that easy on Pidcock as a last-lap crash took him out of contention for victory. Pidcock still aims to do better and believes that one loss will not hold him back.
It’s not the end of the world. Not exactly how I hoped but there’s time to recover a bit this week and everything is to play for next week.
We are looking forward to Tom Pidcock’s amazing performance in the World Championship. The event will take place in Fayetteville, Arkansas from January 28-31.
