Pidcock forgoes Giro d’Italia for mountain biking this May

While a large portion of the men’s peloton are heading to Hungary and Italy for the Giro d’Italia, and others use May as a training block ahead of June stage races and the Tour de France, Tom Pidcock is taking a different route as he switches disciplines to get back on his mountain bike.

The 22-year-old Olympic cross-country MTB champion is set to take in four races on the mountain bike this month in Germany and the Czech Republic, bypassing the chance to race his second career Grand Tour at the Giro d’Italia.
