British rider Thomas Pidcock was hit from the side by a car at high-speed last week shortly after starting a high-speed descent in the French Pyrenees, according to a report in cyclingnews.com. Doctors reportedly operated on his broken collarbone and pinned it back together again. Pidcock was reportedly catapulted over the car and his Pinarello bike was broken in two. Pidcock is not expected to race in the Leogang World Cup event in Austria this coming weekend, but he is expected to be racing in the Les Gets World Cup race in France in July, and then in the Olympics. Pidcock was looking like one of the favorites heading into the Olympics after his commanding performance at Nove Mesto, where he passed and dropped the leader, Mathieu van der Poel, after which Pidcock went on to win that World Cup race 60 seconds ahead of Van der Poel.
