Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers) is set to miss this weekend’s Milan-San Remo race with concussion following his crash on the final stage of Tirreno-Adriatico.
The 23-year-old was set to return to action at ‘La Classicissima’, however, his team announced he will be “rested for a prescribed period”.
The team wrote in a statement: “Tom Pidcock has been undergoing continuous monitoring by the team’s doctors following his crash on the final stage of Tirreno-Adriatico.
“After presenting symptoms of a mild concussion, Tom will now be rested for a prescribed period, in line with established concussion protocols.”
Rod Ellingworth, the deputy team principal, added: “This is obviously disappointing for Tom and the team. We saw at Strade Bianche the sort of form he’s in and I know how keen he was to carry that into Milano-San Remo.
“But rider welfare is our first priority and he’ll follow the advice of our medical team to ensure that he’s 100% ready to safely resume his Classics campaign.”
His crash in the final stage of Tirreno-Adriatico was his second of the race, having earlier been involved in a spill with Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) on Stage 4.
