British Cycling has today announced the long list of riders from which the final Great Britain Cycling Team for the forthcoming UCI Road World Championships in Richmond, Virginia, will be confirmed.
Two-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome is long-listed for both the road race and time trial events whilst 2011 world champion Mark Cavendish has been long-listed for the road race. Lizzie Armitstead, who won the World Cup series in 2014, is long-listed for the elite women’s road race.
Great Britain Cycling Team’s Iain Dyer said: “We’ve got a very strong long list of riders from which we will select the final team, and there are some really exciting prospects in the mix including a few riders who sit outside the British Cycling programme structure.
"We will be announcing the final team for the UCI Road World Championships in due course.”
