Pidcock takes gold in the global mountain bike championships.

Olympic champion Tom Pidcock won the world championship cross country mountain bike marathon after a mishap halted Mathieu van der Poel's hope of completing a rare treble.

Pidcock won his maiden world title in mountain biking

The 24-year-old has also won a cyclocross world championship and an important Tour de France stage at the Alpe d'Huez summit.

Pidcock won bronze in cross-country short track this week in what he called a "warm-up race."

The cross-discipline rider rode on row five of a mass start a year before the Paris Olympics.

Van der Poel's first lap mistake denied him a record trifecta after winning the global cyclo-cross championships in February.

Earlier, Pauline Ferrand-Prevot won the cross-country mountain bike world championship, solidifying her place as a favorite for the Paris Games next year.

Ferrand-Prevot now has 15 world titles across multiple disciplines and is the first female cyclist to join Ineos Grenadiers.
