Great Britain team named for Track Worlds

Olympic and World Champions looking for continued success

Pruszkow, Poland, 25-29 March 2009

Great Britain has named the riders who will be travelling to Pruszkow, Poland for the UCI Track World Championships next week.

The women representatives are a mixture of experience and fresh talent, although most of those named have performed well in the 2008-2009 UCI Track World Cup Classics. The Track World Cup provides nations with an opportunity to give riders exposure to the highest level of international competition and are, at the same time, qualification events for starting spots at the World Championships.

British Cycling’s performance director, Dave Brailsford, is pleased with the selection: “This has been a winter of experimentation and innovation for the team and our selection of riders reflects that. We have a great mix of youth and experience and see Poland as our first step on the road to London 2012. Given the abundance of talent in our Academy Programme, this year's World Championships presents the perfect opportunity for us to give them the chance to experience competition at world level and perform on the biggest stage alongside some of our current Olympic and World Champions.
