Tom Pidcock after victory in Kortrijk - "I'm in better shape than last year"

Tom Pidcock took home his first cyclocross victory of the season with X2O Trofee Kortrijk - Urban Cross. He beat Eli Iserbyt and Lars van der Haar to secure the win.

"This year, I'm in better shape than last year, Last week I also showed that in Overijse," said Pidcock. He managed to drop other riders in the second lap and created a gap of 10 seconds. "It was super fast. I hit a gap, but I couldn't really extend it. It was seven, eight seconds the whole time compared to Lars.”

Pidcock cleverly used van der Haar and Iserbyt’s battle to his advantage and kept his lead till the end. “I tried to stay focused and keep my pace. I knew Van der Haar and Iserbyt would be busy with the standings when they got together. That indeed happened, which allowed me to run out a little further. The cross was similar to last Saturday but now it went a lot better," concluded Pidcock.
