16-year-old from Yorkshire won his second junior world title of 2017 yesterday

Great Britain's Tom Pidcock has uploaded the ride that yesterday saw him win his second rainbow jersey of 2017 to Strava.

The 18-year-old from Yorkshire put in a dominant performance to add the junior time trial title to the junior cyclo-cross world championship he won earlier this year in Luxembourg.

His ride yesterday in Bergen, Norway, uploaded here was undertaken at an average speed of 43.8 kilometres an hour and along the way he bagged the Strava KOM on the Bergen 2017 7 segment.​

Here are the video highlights of the junior men's time trial.

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.

20km for a World Championships?  Seems a bit short.

This lad could be the brightest star of British cycling if only he can avoid the temptations of:

Drugs

Girls

Booze

Celebrity

Easy money and ....

Katie Price.

Suddenly the odds don't look so good.
