Three in a row for Cav! (y)
Good win the other day for young Tom Pidcock at the Brabantse Pijl one day classic. Got the better of Wout Van Aert and Matteo Trantin in a breakaway. Not had too many one day specialists since we started taking cycling seriously.

Impressive win for Pidcock on a lumpy course like that.

The pic makes it look like they should have given it to Pidcock 😄
This one looks like Van Aert although I think the different body positions have a visual effect. The position of the rear tyres look identical. Apparently magnifying glasses were called for by the race stewards 😉

Very promising stuff from Pidcock even so, IG seem to have unearthed a talent there I believe he has an MTB background.

Fillipo Ganna of Ineos Grenadiers took stage one of the Giro d’italia for the second year running...high hope expected for Simon Yates in the years Giro.
