OTLEY rider Tom Pidcock could not follow up his time trial gold mdal with a podium berth in the junior men's race at the UCI Road World Championships in Bergen, Norway.

Julius Johansen of Denmark was the winner, with Pidcock 25th in the main bunch – as was Great Britain's Jacob Vaughan, who was 36th in the same time.

Mark Donovan, who had figured in a number of key breakaways earlier on, was 46th a further 23 seconds back, while Fred Wright abandoned the race on the penultimate lap.
