Watch Out, Tom Pidcock! Two-Year-Old Races on Balance Bike After Watching British Cyclist Win Gold

A two-year-old boy tried to go for the gold on his balance bike in Halwell, UK, on July 26, inspired by the victory of British cross-country cyclist and now Olympic champion Tom Pidcock.

Louise Hoskins captured her son Maverick’s antics while they were on holiday, which she shared to Twitter on July 28.

“I’m racing you!” Maverick yells in the video as he ventures along the dirt hills at the Wheeldon Off-Road Centre alongside his older brothers, Eliot and Oliver.

“His poor little legs were aching the next day,” Hoskins said.
