"I got better every day, so that's very positive for me" - Tom Pidcock takes positive sensations from Tour de Suisse

Tom Pidcock finished sixth in the final classification of the Tour de Suisse in the run-up to Tour de France. Thanks to a strong final time trial, in which he clocked the fifth best time of the day, the versatile Briton managed to move up one spot.

"This was my best result in a time trial since I started riding as a professional. So I think I can be very happy with that. My wattages are very high, so I am satisfied with that," Pidcock opens the interview after the final time trial. The 24-year-old MTB world champion feels he got a little better every day this week. "I really didn't start well at all, I had just come from an altitude internship and felt super light, but it got better every day."

According to Pidcock, this is a good sign for his classification ambitions in the future. "I think this week really shows what training can do. We raced in the mountains for five days in a row and I got better every day, so that's very positive for me."

Yet the former cyclo-cross world champion does not want to spend his entire career riding for 'just' places of honor in final rankings. "I am sixth in the final classification because I overtook Enric Mas, but I don't want to be someone who finishes in the top 10 of an overall classification every time."
