Road To 2012
Britain Move To Seventh In World Tour Rankings
In the chase for Olympic qualification points, Britain has moved up in the World Tour road rankings as the men's final cut-off of October 16.
Cementing Britain's top-ten place - moving from ninth to seventh within the World Tour rankings - qualifies five riders to London 2012.
The move takes on further significance when considering the road World Championships in September - a key event for scoring further points and one which Mark Cavendish holds particular interest.
And in a race where teamwork and a strong lead out is key, points scored at the Tour Of Poland by Pete Kennaugh, Steve Cummings and Adam Blythe could be the difference between six and eight riders.
