Brits storm to emphatic victories in Denmark
Britain’s Ben Tulett overcame the pressure of his title defence to claim a second junior cyclocross title as Tom Pidcock claimed his first Under-23 rainbow jersey.
Tulett said it was “a dream come true” as he crossed the line alone, 20 seconds ahead of his nearest Belgian rival.
Later on Saturday (February 2) Tulett was joined by Tom Pidcock in the rainbow jersey, who took his first Under-23 world title.
Tulett said: “There was a lot of pressure on me today as I was a first-year junior champion last year.“I had to just keep calm and go through the processes.
“I did that really well and picked my moment where I was going to go in the race and did what I needed to do and it worked. So I’m chuffed.
“It feels like a dream come true. It’s what every cyclist dreams of doing, so to win one it’s more than special.”Tulett had stuck with the lead group before putting in the decisive attack on lap four, riding away from rivals on the slippery course in Bogense, Denmark.
