He is a handsome lad.Funny last line. Agree with everything you said here, but I think it's fair to say that he and MVDP were on opposite ends of the form spectrum in their two MTB races this spring. That said, I would give Pidcock the advantage on courses with sustained climbs. As for Namur, didn't MVDP and WvA go 1, 2?And once everyone was on full form he never really stayed close to them this year in CX.
He will be (is) able to beat MVDP an WvA on more hilly courses like LBL or FW but I he will have a very tough time against them in races like Tour of Flanders, PR or any race taking place in Flanders.
