Tom Pidcock is not having the ideal start to the season. In the prelude to the 2024 Itzulia, the British rider suffered a spectacular fall while reconnoitering the route of the time trial that kicks off the race. The team has preferred not to take any risks by sending the British rider to the hospital for a more thorough check-up, which obviously prevented him from starting the Basque race.

Bad luck for Tom Pidcock in what was supposed to be his first test in his road season before facing the Ardennes trilogy, the main goal of the British rider this spring before focusing on the mountain bike campaign for the Olympics.

According to his team, Tom Pidcock suffered a fall during the reconnaissance of the initial time trial of the 2024 Itzulia, which takes place in the Basque city of Irún, presumably caused by a strong gust of wind on a day of changing weather and on a route with several very tricky sections. A fall that has caused a strong impact on his hip area.

In fact, the weather conditions have led many of the favorites to prefer to start early in the race in anticipation of a worsening weather in the final part of the time trial, taking advantage of a brief respite in the weather.

Carlos Rodríguez, leader of INEOS Grenadiers in the 2024 Itzulia, is now without his main support when it comes to controlling the different race situations that arise in the routes full of tricky sections that the Basque race always presents.

So far, the British rider is still being examined and the extent of the injuries caused by the fall is unknown.
