INEOS Grenadiers (Belgium) - Press Release: Tom Pidcock claimed his first professional road victory in emphatic fashion at De Brabantse Pijl.
The young Brit showed calm and race-craft beyond his years in a thrilling finale in Overijse, timing his sprint to perfection on the uphill ramp to the line and overhauling rival Wout Van Aert.
It had been the Grenadier who twice enlivened the final with a pair of identical attacks on the Hertstraat. His first move helped force a selection on the finishing circuit, before the second helped set up a three-up final shootout.
The win is a continuation of Pidcock's superb step up to the professional ranks - following a podium at Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne and a fifth place at Strade Bianche.
