The INEOS Grenadiers will support Tom Pidcock in the mountain bike discipline during 2021 as he steps up to the elite level.
Pidcock counts himself amongst a new generation of exciting multi-discipline riders, and holds world titles at under-23 or junior level on the road in addition to mountain biking and cyclo-cross.
Testing is already under way, with Pidcock and Coach Kurt Bogaerts supported by the team across a four-day test session in Catalunya, Spain – looking at equipment options for the coming season. It is an exciting and new challenge for the team, stepping up with Tom to the elite level of mountain biking.
In addition to getting towards the front of a highly competitive MTB grid, Pidcock will also be looking to accumulate points which will help go towards his Olympic aspirations. A world champion at under-23 level in MTB and e-MTB, Pidcock starts his pro career looking to work his way upwards.
