British Cycling announces team for the UCI Road Cycling World Championships

Defending World Time Trial Champion Emma Pooley has been selected for the Women's Time Trial event, whilst the women's road race will see a full quota of seven GB riders including current Olympic Champion Nicole Cooke.

Performance Director Dave Brailsford said: "This is the biggest team we've taken to a Road World Championships demonstrating the continuous progression of road racing in the UK. It's great to see the positive impact that Team Sky has had on young developing riders, with Geraint Thomas, Chris Froome, Pete Kennaugh and Alex Dowsett all being long-listed.

"We are heading to the Road Worlds with serious aspirations this year. The long-listed team will be narrowed down over the next week, and everyone on the team - both riders and support staff - is excited about the event."
