British Cycling has named the Great Britain Cycling Team for the final round of 2014 UCI Para-cycling Road World Cup in Segovia, Spain on 25-27 July.
Eleven riders will travel to Cantimpalos for three days of racing as the team continue to qualify points for the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games.
World time-trial champions Lora Turnham and Corrine Hall are included. The tandem pair won the women’s B road race and time-trial in May at the first round of the world cup in Castiglione Della Pescaia, Italy.
Paralympic champion David Stone is also selected with a number of development athletes set to race.
Great Britain para-cycling road coach Paul Dring said: “As the second and final world cup of the season it is important to collect as many qualification points as we can for Rio 2016.
“The event is also an important part of our preparation for the world championships in Greenville, USA, which take place at the end of August.
“The squad includes some experienced members of the team, but also some exciting development riders, and with selection for the world championships taking place shortly afterwards, everyone is looking to take advantage of this final opportunity to try and secure a place on the plane."
