After his win on Saturday, he mentioned having a rest; then Andorra World Cup next week was rumoured. He's also meant to be doing the 2 north America races, end of September/early October - plus the Paris test event.
Always enjoy watching Pidcock in MTB, but that's pretty disappointing for his road season. Probably nothing after parading around the Tour of Britain?
recovered from infected saddle sore, olympic test event today, and then canada and usa world cups the following two weekends, fits nicely into his other commitments in the usa, like last year.

probably indicates a similar cyclo-cross start and season to last year, maybe a little later as doesn't have the rainbows to show off. I think he'll do the worlds this year, although tabor isn't great for him? might be his last opportunity. + he already won strade this year so doesn't need to be in top form early march.

“The intention is for Tom to participate in both mountain biking and road racing in Paris," Pidcock's coach Kurt Bogaerts told Het Nieuwsblad. “His ambition is Olympic gold again. The road ride is a little more complicated, but it's a good thing that the mountain biking is already over. The explosiveness of that discipline can come in handy in the road race.” This comes as virtual certainty that the plan for INEOS Grenadiers is to have the Briton race both events at the Olympic Games and aim high for both.

bit surprised he's doing so many sand crosses, and not Baal. Had hoped he'd do the nationals for one last time, but must be a ineos camp or something.
At least he has avoided the other two on three of his events. Makes him more likely to get something other than 3rd.
