Double junior world champion Tom Pidcock’s incredible year in 2017 has led to him being awarded Great Britain Cycling Team Rider of the Year. The 18-year-old won multiple honours throughout the last 12 months but his stand-out achievements were becoming junior cyclo-cross world champion and the junior road time trial world title holder.

With the help of SportsAid, I did my thing. I didn’t come from a wealthy family, and there were times when I thought ‘I need a job’ but I stuck to my swimming. Thankfully it did pay off. It's about gambling and making sacrifices. I put a high risk in myself and invested the time in what was going to make the difference to my swimming.
