"Full focus on a big summer" - Tom Pidcock switches attentions as Classics Spring comes to an end

With the Classics Spring having reached its end, Grand Tour season is quickly approaching and for INEOS Grenadiers star Tom Pidcock, full focus now turns to preparing for the summer.

"Not my day on Sunday," reflects the 24-year-old on his official Instagram account, referring to a somewhat disappointing finale to his Spring, with a 10th placed finish at Liege-Bastogne-Liege last weekend. "Spent my pounds coming back after the worst possible timed puncture and you can’t buy anything with pennies anymore!"

Nevertheless, it wasn't a completely wasted spring for Pidcock. The Brit took his first road triumph in over a year at the Amstel Gold Race, sprinting to victory in a frantic finale to the Ardennes opener. "Been an up and down spring," Pidcock assesses. "But happy I could get my hands on the air in the end."

This summer, Pidcock is again expected to try and mount a general classification challenge at the Tour de France. A former Alpe d'Huez stage winner, Pidcock narrowly missed out on the top-10 last year after a disappointing third week. "Now time for a short break before full focus on a big summer," the INEOS Grenadiers star concludes.
