Luke Lamperti (Trinity Racing) seemed to come out of nowhere when he became the youngest elite US criterium national champion in Knoxville in June. But if there were any doubts about the authenticity of his talent, the 18-year-old squashed them by coming fourth behind riders like Ethan Hayter, Giacomo Nizzolo and Dan McLay in a stage of the Tour of Britain.

He carried that form to the UCI Road World Championships where he finished 10th in the U23 road race but was later disqualified after the judges ruled he had crashed another rider on one of the cobbled climbs, an accusation he refutes in our interview.
