British Cycling has today confirmed the squad of riders who will represent the Great Britain Cycling Team at the forthcoming UCI Junior Track World Championships in Frankfurt.
Recently crowned Junior European Champions Elynor Backstedt, Emma Finucane, Sophie Lewis and Max Rushby have all made selection for the 12 strong team who will travel to Germany for the event which takes place from 14th – 18th August.
Performance Pathway Manager Tom Stanton said: “We have selected 12 junior riders for this year’s world championships and as always with our pathway riders, the key focus is providing development opportunities which can be capitalised on in the future.
“All of the riders selected for the worlds competed at the European Championships earlier this month and we saw some promising performances as well as a medal haul of four gold, five silver and one bronze medal. The riders now have the opportunity to springboard up a level and compete against a world-class field in each of the disciplines.
“We’ll be looking for the riders to put into practice what they have learnt so far and to build on their performances from the European Championships, and I am confident we have selected a team who will not only benefit from this experience but also deliver some podium results.”
