Tom Pidcock raffles winning jerseys for Charlie Craig Foundation

Pidcock hopes to raise £5,000 for the cause

Cyclocross and TT World Champion Tom Pidcock is raffling off three of his championship-winning jerseys with all proceeds going to the Ride For Charlie charity.

The three jerseys - his Junior European Cyclocross jersey, U23 World Cup leader's jersey and Junior Worlds Cyclocross jersey - will be up for winning on a Just Giving page with tickets costing £5 each.

In a video on his twitter page, Pidcock commented that his various jerseys had garnered a lot of interest so, in a bid to do something good, he decided to raffle the signed jerseys off in a bid to raise money for the foundation created in the memory of the late Charlie Craig.

Craig sadly passed suddenly in his sleep a year ago. The 15-year-old was a talented bike rider and known across the UK for his presence in the mountain bike and cyclocross scene.

The foundation was founded in his name last year to help fund young, aspirational off-road riders who share the same dream as Charlie.

Last year, Ian Stannard (Team Sky) and Ben Swift (UAE-Team Emirates) attended a question and answer session that raised money towards the foundation.

Pidcock hopes to raise £5,000 from the raffle, a total that would significantly help the foundation.

The 18-year-old has fast become one of Britain's brightest talents on both the road and in the mud. Already riding on a pro cyclocross contract with Telenet-Fidea Lions, the Yorkshireman can count the junior individual time trial World Championships and junior Paris-Roubaix amongst his illustrious palmares.
