Recent Under-23 Giro d’Italia winner Tom Pidcock , James Knox and Hugh Carthy are expected to lead the Great Britain men’s team for the World Championships road race in Imola, Italy, while both Adam and Simon Yates have opted not to race and Geraint Thomas will only ride the time trial.
21-year-old Pidcock is allowed to step up to ride the Elite race in the absence of the U23 events. He is the current U23 cyclo-cross world champion and won three stages and dominated the overall classification of the U23 Giro d’Italia and seems perfectly suited to the hilly Imola course.
Pidcock was aggressive in the recent elite men’s European Championships and does not seem concerned about taking on the likes of Wout van Aert, Julian Alaphilippe, Alejandro Valverde and Vincenzo Nibali.
Knox recently finished seventh overall at Tirreno-Adriatico, while Carthy is riding well in support of EF Pro Cycling team leader Rigoberto Urán at the Tour de France.
